  • Expand your network with like-minded people during the hydrogen lectures 

Over the past decade, the advent of cheaper renewables has begun to challenge the reliance on 20th-century fuels. The falling costs of renewable technologies like solar PV, wind and batteries are opening a new development pathway. Renewables are now the cheapest form of electricity generation,
beating 61% of existing coal-fired power plants on cost without financial support in 2020. As a result, the developing world now has a unique chance to leapfrog fossil fuels in the power system. Several countries have already done so or are on the cusp of tilting towards renewables to supply all or nearly all of the growth in electricity demand.

This lecture is part of the Geopolitics of Hydrogen course, which provides a comprehensive understanding of the global dynamics related to hydrogen. Click here for more information and to enroll for this course.
