Opening Panel: Potential of hydrogen for a clean, secure, and affordable energy future

Conference speaker
Zest's Managing Director Jeffrey Beyer speaks at the World Utilities Congress

Zest's Managing Director Jeffrey Beyer joined the opening panel of the World Utilities Congress Live Talks session on hydrogen.

Hydrogen continues to gain momentum as a clean alternative energy carrier as net zero emissions strategies across the power and utilities sector start to take shape.

Hydrogen is one of the ways in which energy users can decarbonize, especially in hard-to-abate sectors like heavy industry, shipping and aviation, and heavy-duty transport.

It may also play a role in long-duration energy storage, which will be a critical part of managing electricity grids powered entirely by renewable and non-emitting sources of power.

The panel discussed the latest developments in the hydrogen industry, how to close the large gap between current investment levels and the scale of investment required to reach net zero, and what the future will hold as policy and regulation starts to take shape.

Imteyaz Ahmed, Managing Director of FWPC; Oliver Phillips, Sustainable Finance Lead Africa and Middle East Lead at Standard Chartered; Kosta Jovanovic, Managing Director of Orion Energy Advisors; and Jeffrey Beyer, Managing Director of Zest Associates
