Black & Veatch joins Center for Hydrogen Safety to help accelerate adoption of low-carbon energy source
Black & Veatch is an employee-owned engineering, procurement, consulting and construction company with a more than 100-year track record of innovation in sustainable infrastructure.
Efforts to decarbonize the power sector while maintaining a reliable, balanced generation mix remains a goal of the industry. Initial hydrogen turbine projects in Europe have demonstrated the viability of the technology, drawing acclaim for its promise to provide reliable baseload power.
Hydrogen is a rising star in the changing energy landscape, particularly when it comes to pursuing robust decarbonization through renewables. Fully integrating hydrogen into the energy mix will be a complicated endeavor. This will require strong collaboration between engineering leaders such as Black & Veatch, technology integrators, investors, activists and regulators, along with the support of high-impact safety organizations such as CHS.—Mario Azar, president of Black & Veatch’s power business
With help from advances in battery storage, hydrogen is widely expected to make a star turn over the next decade, particularly as “gray hydrogen”—derived from fossil fuels such as oil, natural gas and coal—slowly gives way to “green hydrogen” produced with renewable energy.
