Hydrogen’s Societal Value: key for the Hydrogen Communication

04:15- 04:55 CET
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Katsuhiko Hirose | HyWealth CO, CEO & Chief Consultant / Kyushu University, WPI visiting Professor

I am happy to see the re-rise of hydrogen since spending the later life for hydrogen advocacy.
Rising attention of hydrogen is higher and higher from industry and governments, experiencing the rise and fall (and re-rise) of hydrogen in the past and now, it is a good time to talk about the value of hydrogen for the future.
De-canonization is no longer the expense for the environment it is the investment to construct the future sustainable world by means of economy and energy thus life..
Biggest skepticism for hydrogen is low efficiency from renewable (electrons to hydrogen and back to electrons process) but real value of hydrogen is not just thermal value, more important point is societal value.
I will propose how we evaluate the societal value of hydrogen and how we should talk to the people to convince the hydrogen’s role in the future. Hoping to help the audience to think deeper about the role of hydrogen.
