Dates for ICE2021 in 2022 have been finalized, and 2 free webinars preceding ICE 2021 are available • Final dates for the 3rd International Conference on Electrolysis 2021 (ICE 2021) Conference that has been postponed until 2022 have been set. The Conference will be held June 20 through 23, 2022. Just as originally planned, the Conference will be held at Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado USA. Also, we want to announce the availability of two webinars on June 18, 2021 and June 25, 2021. The June 18 webinar will focus on the economics of electrolysis and PEM electrolysis. The June 25 webinar will explore alkaline electrolysis and solid oxide electrolysis.

ICE 2021 postponed until 2022 • The 3rd International Conference on Electrolysis 2021 (ICE 2021) Conference originally scheduled June 27-July 1, 2021 has been rescheduled for June 19 - 23, 2022. We are planning to have a brief, live virtual event during the planned time frame (June 27-July 1, 2021) consisting of a few Plenary talks and perhaps a panel that will be open to the public.

Hold the date! • ICE 2021 is scheduled for June 27th-July 1st, 2021 at Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado, USA. Registration is anticipated to open November 2021 with updated program, venue, and lodging information, at the ICE 2021 website. The advances in the area of electrolysis and the international growing interest in the topic, basically prevent anything beyond having this meeting on its regularly scheduled time. While it is anticipated this will be an in-person only event, depending on the state of travel at the time of the event semi-virtual formats may also be considered later. The event is co-organized between the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) and the Colorado School of Mines and will take place on the Colorado School of Mines campus with an optional tour available for NREL.

Scope for the ICE series

We continue the success of the first two international electrolyser conferences (ICE 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark and ICE 2019 in Loen, Norway) where entire conferences were devoted to the topic of electrolysis for energy conversion. ICE 2021 will be the third installment of what we hope will be a thriving conference series on electrolysis for energy conversion.

The research in all aspects of electrolysis for energy conversion and storage is growing rapidly. Demonstration and commercial installation of electrolysers coupled with renewable energy sources have grown from sub-MW installations a few years ago to tens of MW today. There is an increased recognition and awareness that the conversion of electrical energy to storable chemicals and fuels is an inevitable part of the green transition from a fossil based to a sustainable energy system.

We would like to invite you all to contribute to the continued success of the ICE conference series. We will do our utmost to host you all, but only you – the participants – can ensure the quality and success of the conference.

On behalf of the scientific and organising committees,

Welcome to ICE 2021 in Golden, Colorado, USA!
