H2 World – Module 8 – Muren Guler – Venn Energy – Developing Utility Scale Bankable Solar And Hydrogen Projects

About this Module

The H2 World’s module 8 presents Venn Energy’s Managing Partner, Muren Guler, who will be delivering valuable insights into developing utility scale hydrogen projects and how they can be made bankable.

Muren Guler will discuss project development concepts with supporting business models for combining hydrogen and solar technologies. Exploring such models as stand-alone (grid-connected) and Co-located (grid/non-grid connected) and how various approaches present unique opportunities for minimising LCOH (Levelised Cost Of Hydrogen) to reach 2030 and 2050 targets. Muren Guler will share with us identified challenges and hurdles of the different development concepts followed by suggestions on how to address them. Best practices and opportunities learned from Venn Energy’s rich background in the sector will also be delivered in this knowledge-packed module of the H2 World.
