We encourage the Commission to continue to seek information about emerging technologies outside the context of utility applications. It is tempting to imagine switching one fuel for another as a short-cut to energy transition and decarbonization, but regulators should not be expected to approve technology based on speculation. Nor should regulators accept that hydrogen can affordably reduce carbon emissions and other harmful pollution.
Excerpt From Our Letter:
It was helpful to hear some of the economic perspective regarding hydrogen and its role in decarbonization in Louisiana, at the Business and Executive meeting on November 17th.
