A ‘lightbulb’ moment: Renewable Hydrogen Alliance’s new Executive Director shares why hydrogen is such an important tool for decarbonisation

“It was like a lightbulb went on,” said the Renewable Hydrogen Alliance’s (RHA) new Executive Director, Michelle Detwiler, as she described to H2 View the moment she realised hydrogen’s potential.

“It really was this ‘aha’ moment in realising what a beautiful solution to so many of the issues we face trying to decarbonise our economy. That’s what got me interested.”

Detwiler highlighted the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report that came out recently, which says in some cases and for some impacts we’re seeing, it’s almost too late to reverse them.

“It reminded of a trip I took with my daughter this past spring. We were coming back from  Lake Tahoe where we had gone to do some late season skiing and on that journey we drove over Lake Shasta. Lake Shasta is one of the main water supplies for the California central valley which produces one-quarter of the food for the United States. And when we saw it, it was easily 10-12ft below normal when it should have been full from Spring rains” Detwiler told H2 View.
