Hydrogen – driving the green revolution

With more and more countries pledging climate neutrality, the world needs to find solutions to decarbonise every last part of our economy. Hydrogen is the word on everyone’s lips, and there are good reasons behind the hype. Because of its multifaceted and versatile nature, it can play a key role in addressing the challenges ahead. On the one hand, it can serve as an energy carrier or as feedstock. On the other hand, it can be used to store seasonal renewable electricity.

Hydrogen has a strong potential to facilitate the decarbonisation of ’hard-to-decarbonise’ and energy intensive industrial sectors, such as steel. Moreover, it can be used as green fuel for heavy-duty transport modes, for which currently existing electric battery technologies are impractical.

As the EU moves away from its dependency on fossil fuel, hydrogen will play a key role in our future energy systems, and for delivering on the aim set out in the European Green Deal of achieving carbon-neutrality in the EU by 2050.

Through a combination of renewables, smart storage, energy efficiency and flexible grids, latest modelling estimates that clean and sustainable energy can be delivered at scale and at speed – with many experts forecasting that hydrogen will be at the very heart of this transition. But the first question is what form of hydrogen is best suited to realise our climate ambition.
