SEA has assembled a team over the last year to launch a Green Hydrogen practice area. Part of this work has been policy-focused, examining Green Hydrogen policy pathways, interactions with existing policies, implications for achievement of carbon goals, and the initial scoping and design of a tracking and attribution framework for Green Hydrogen. An overview of some of SEA’s work in this space is available here.
As a part of its Green Hydrogen practice area noted above, SEA has meticulously tracked the development and implementation of programs, policies, legislation, and plans pertaining to green hydrogen in the northeast, and reporting on these developments through our Eyes & Ears subscription service.
SEA has also conducted extensive literature review, developed primers and techno-economic modeling tools to assess the hydrogen production capacity, electrical generation capacity, and economic viability of proposed green hydrogen projects. SEA was recently engaged by a solar developer exploring incorporating green hydrogen production into a project expansion, including an opportunities analysis and development of a financial model of green hydrogen production economics. SEA is developing a proposal, in concert with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, to develop a framework for Green Hydrogen tracking and attribution, necessary to assure that hydrogen sources can be credibly identified, and is proposing a related supplemental project to Green Bank
SEA has also been tracking the development and operation of green hydrogen infrastructure projects across the U.S., with an emphasis on projects sited in New England and New York. This includes evaluating hydrogen transportation through standalone pipelines, blended pipelines, on-road vehicles, and other tanking equipment; and hydrogen consumption for industrial end-uses.
