Revolutionizing the A/E/C Industry: The Synergy of Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) and Hydrogen

California, with its abundant energy opportunities, stands at a pivotal moment in its energy history. Join speakers, Justin Freeman, Coffman Engineers’ VP of Hydrogen and Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS), and Jonathan Wirthlin, PE, SE, for a journey into the future of energy in California. We’ll explore what the energy transition entails, how the transition is currently affecting California and its anticipated future impact, and the critical role California’s A/E/C community can play in supporting upcoming energy projects. Additionally, we’ll delve into forecasted energy initiatives that are poised to shape the state’s energy landscape.
