With the new $4.00 per kg federal incentive from the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) for green hydrogen, this technology now deserves serious attention. Hydrogen production and use as a fuel will be a growing component of our industry’s clean energy transition. This presentation explains and compares three options to produce hydrogen with zero, or near zero, CO 2 emissions. We will look at and compare:
- Green Hydrogen from solar PV electrical hydrolysis of water
- Blue Hydrogen using steam methane reforming of natural gas (with carbon capture)
- Turquoise Hydrogen, or methane pyrolysis, which produces solid carbon and no CO 2 gas
CAPEX, OPEX, and carbon balance will also be covered, including the potential tax credit implications under the IRA.
