CHBC Summer Summit -- Two Workshops -- July 29th and 30th!

On July 29th & 30th, the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) will host its Summer Summit at Southern California Gas Company's Energy Resource Center in Downey, CA.  

This exclusive two day event will be composed of a pair of interlocking workshops that are important to California and beyond: "Renewable Pathways to Hydrogen" and "Hydrogen for Energy Storage and Grid Services." The workshops are designed to create actionable outcomes for the attendees and the CHBC. Each workshop will address:

  • The Opportunity
  • The State of Current Modeling and Analysis
  • Experiences to Date
  • Barriers to Adoption
  • Next Steps to Project Development

Speakers at the summit will be presenting and helping attendees actively participate in developing conclusions and recommendations that may directly affect California and other states' policies. Each workshop will result in a report and summary fact sheet.
