NETL Associate Director for Research and Innovation Bryan Morreale, Ph.D., will discuss the Lab’s efforts to advance hydrogen technologies for decarbonizing the economy during a panel at the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS) in Pittsburgh Sept. 28-30.
The panel, which will be held from 1:00-1:45 EDT on the first day of the conference, is titled “Hydrogen: The Key to a Decarbonised Economy.” Morreale will join Mike Docherty, executive director, Appalachian Energy Future, and Klaus Brun, director, Research and Development, Elliott Group, to discuss the role of hydrogen in the nation’s energy transition.
NETL’s hydrogen research focuses on technologies that improve fossil fuel-based power generation through efficient, low-cost, dynamic innovations and evaluation of carbon-based clean hydrogen production as a decarbonized alternative to traditional fossil fuels. The Lab’s work includes research in advanced turbines, solid oxide fuel cells, gasification systems, transformative power generation and 21st century power plants.
GMIS is a joint initiative of the United Arab Emirates and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization that unites influential delegates from the global manufacturing and technology communities, including government leaders, industry CEOs, researchers and academic trailblazers to discuss, debate and shape the future of the manufacturing sector.
Past GMIS editions have been held around the globe, but this will be the first time the summit has been held in the United States. Bringing the event to Pittsburgh is helping to accentuate the city’s rapid evolution from a traditional heavy manufacturing center to a model of modernization and innovation. The event will be co-hosted by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf.
