Clean Hydrogen and Derivatives Business Summit - Presented by Infocast
The logo of the event, Clean Hydrogen & Ammonia

November 13 - 14, 2024

Hear From Top Executives About Cutting-Edge Business Strategies for Capturing the Vast Opportunities in Hydrogen and Hydrogen Derivatives

The technology and incentives are in place to enable clean hydrogen to be the biggest growth industry in the world over the next 10 years--with the potential for production in a mere five years to be 30 times today’s levels.

However, that growth will only occur, and market players will only reach FID at a scale to capture the burgeoning opportunities, if the hydrogen community can solve the business challenges facing this new industry. Can the developers of hydrogen and hydrogen-derivative projects accurately gauge demand, enable commodity markets and price discovery, set up offtake arrangements, secure supplies of critical equipment, and control costs, while threading the maze of regulatory approvals?

Infocast has designed this remarkable event, the Clean Hydrogen and Derivatives Business Summit, to address those critical business challenges and to bring together top executives to discuss the state-of-the-art business solutions being worked out across the industry. A remarkable group of experts and active players will share (and analyze) strategies for qualifying for 45V incentives, understanding international market demand for both hydrogen and its derivatives, obtaining long-term offtake contracts, handling permitting regulation (and prospective changes thereto), and securing supplies of electrolyzers and other critical equipment.

Infocast’s Clean Hydrogen and Derivatives Business Summit will provide project developers, buyers, and financiers with the information they need to establish winning strategies to meet the challenges of today’s uncertain environment. It will bring developers together with leading financial institutions, industrial decarbonization leaders, and hydrogen market experts to share their experiences, insights, and ideas on how to move the industry forward. Attend the Clean Hydrogen and Derivatives Business Summit to:

  • Assess the opportunities to supply clean hydrogen to domestic and international industrial, maritime, and aviation markets, as well as derivatives such as ammonia and methanol
  • Hear what buyers are looking for in offtake
  • Learn how to meet 45V hourly matching requirements, and how to structure projects to obtain tax equity and commercial financing
  • Examine the impacts of new state and federal permitting processes for pipeline infrastructure, water, and land use, and their impacts on project schedules
  • Hear what will be needed to establish clean hydrogen commodity market, and the first steps now being taken to make them a reality
