About the Summit

16-17th April, 2024
Hyatt Regency Houston West, Houston, Texas

A unique one-day event with keynote, round table and multiple seminars from leaders in hydrogen.

The quest for clean energy solutions has never been greater from stakeholders at every level, and the US government alone has given hydrogen production a massive boost through unprecedented tax credits. Investment in hydrogen-related projects across the USA is in the billions. Hydrogen is seen by many as the White Knight to decarbonize the gas industry in the form of blending. Hydrogen usage is also being driven by industries including power generation and Transportation. The blending and compression of H2 safely and efficiently presents big challenges to equipment manufacturers, midstream operators, producers and packagers. The goal of the COMPRESSORtech2 Hydrogen Summit is to bring leaders together to network and share knowledge, successes and challenges relating to hydrogen blending, equipment and compression.

Thank you to our 2024 sponsors
