THIS EVENT STARTS IN

Attend Live

The last two years we have hosted a series of hydrogen events with great attendance and active discussion, making it even more exciting for us to be hosting this event live and in-person for the first time. We are looking forward to seeing you in beautiful San Diego!
 
Last year’s event was held virtually in May, 2021, and attracted record numbers of attendees. These are just a few of the many positive comments on the quality of the program and the experience:
 
“The presenters were excellent! Very knowledgeable, great information.”
 
“Deep knowledge of hydrogen of the panelists and moderators.”
 
“Detailed situations in California were very informative. Good overall summary related to hydrogen, too.”
