Episode 32: The Future of Green Hydrogen with Enapter

When it comes to energy, what could compete with fossil fuels? Right now, there isn't a strong competitor on the market. In five years, that will all change. Green hydrogen is already making a strong play; the only thing holding it back is cost efficiency and scalability. But those challenges are about to become history. We sat down with Vaitea Cowan, Co-Founder of Enapter-a company on a mission to drive down the cost of green hydrogen and make it competitive with fossil fuels. Join us as we discuss the current Energy landscape, how green hydrogen is an economically beneficial option, and what the future of energy will look like once green hydrogen stakes its claim.
