Delivery of large amounts of renewable hydrogen over long distances could be cost-effective, brief says

The European Commission has released a policy brief revealing that delivery of large amounts of renewable hydrogen over long distances could be cost-effective, helping to achieve climate neutrality in Europe by 2050.

Renewable and low-carbon hydrogen cannot currently compete in terms of production costs with fossil-based hydrogen, whereas hydrogen production must become fully decarbonised in order to contribute to climate neutrality goals.

Importing hydrogen from places with cheaper renewable energy resources could be used as an alternative to local production but would result in greater transportation costs.
