Hydrogen Working Group will discuss operational and permitting challenges in Alaska

hydrogen working group

The next Alaska Hydrogen Working Group meeting will feature a discussion around “Operational and permitting challenges: A discussion of what it will take to get hydrogen systems working on the ground in Alaska.” 

The discussion will be facilitated by Paul McKinley, a joint hydrogen advisor for the Department of Energy Arctic Energy Office and the University of Alaska Fairbanks ACEP. His primary focus is in conducting feasibility assessments to improve clean energy reliability and access in remote Alaskan communities by integrating hydrogen-based fuels and other long-duration storage technologies to microgrids.

The Alaska Hydrogen Working Group is an informal group of stakeholders interested in following developments related to hydrogen and hydrogen carrier technologies, and in providing input related to proposed usage and future deployment in the state. ACEP and the DOE Arctic Energy Office host monthly meetings which include the latest updates and presentations from industry and other stakeholder groups. The working group may also be called upon to provide input on future studies and the development of a state roadmap.

Date: Tuesday, Feb. 6
Time: 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. AKST
