Hydrogen crucial to decarbonising maritime sector; unique opportunity for ports to become hydrogen hubs, report says

A new report released by Hydrogen Europe discusses how hydrogen can be a crucial factor in decarbonising the maritime sector and the unique opportunity ports have to become hydrogen hubs.

Within this new report, hydrogen is highlighted for being a flexible, carbon free fuel source that is flexible in the way it can be adapted for different powering applications.

Despite this, it is not an easy element to store when being compared to fuel sources that are made from hydrogen, such as ammonia, e-methanol and e-diesel, that all have better volumetric energy densities.

Hydrogen Europe found that for large ships ammonia is the cheapest synthetic fuel (based on renewable hydrogen) with the trade-off lying in the fact that as the energy density of the fuels increases the cost also increases.
