NARUC Explores Green Hydrogen: A Moment or a Movement?

Last week, the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners had a panel on green hydrogen. Llewelyn King of the U.S. Energy Association said that it is not a one-on-one substitute for natural gas. He said it is "slippery" and does things to plastic and steel. However, it may be the best option for storage of energy. He said you have to let things evolve. It has been around a long time.
Dr. Laura Nelson of the Green Hydrogen Coalition said that there is a need for long duration storage and green hydrogen could help.
Arshad Mansoor, EPRI President and CEO, said it is a promising application for longterm storage.
Matt Valle, Vice President of Developmet for FPL, said hydrogen has the potential "to decarbonize the U.S. economy." Longer duration storage is needed. It may not be a silver bullet and he doesn't think it will be led by the utility sector. "But if I'm a big commercial customer, it may fit with my corporate goals."
