New York set an ambitious goal for a zero-emission electricity sector by 2040.

What will it take to get there? 

Turns out, hydrogen may be a key component to New York’s climate strategy, especially for difficult-to-electrify sectors.

Haiyan Sun is the program manager and team leader for hydrogen and clean fuels at the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).  With over a decade of experience in the power sector (much of which was in GE’s gas division), she has valuable insights to offer on hydrogen’s potential to fuel NY’s clean energy goals, so listen up!

Expect to learn:

  • How hydrogen can decarbonize hard-to-electrify industries like the transportation, power gen, and high temperature industrial sectors (ie, Steel).
  • The importance of including disadvantaged communities in the energy transition.
  • New York’s strategy for making hydrogen as successful as solar and battery storage.
