    EIP: Accelerating decentralized, resilient and sustainable energy systems

    Innovation & Technology

    The multidimensional nature of the energy transition is reshaping the global energy system. The need to balance markets, climate and geopolitics is creating more complex systems—requiring greater flexibility and responsiveness in our ability to manage them. What innovations are emerging to meet these needs? What role will new entrants play in managing this complexity? How are financial and regulatory systems adapting to support this transformation? This panel will feature members of the 2024 class of CERAWeek Energy Innovation Pioneers.

    Modern Hydrogen | Cutting Gas Emissions Without New Infrastructure

    Distributed methane pyrolysis is one of few decarbonization solutions that can drastically cut emissions without requiring new infrastructure. Tony Pan, cofounder and CEO of Modern Hydrogen details the value of on-site hydrogen production, the advantages compared to electrolysis, and how Modern's modular approach to gas decarbonization represents the best of both worlds for industrial and utility operators in their quest for net zero.
