New research identifies key opportunities for hydrogen to provide synergies for the US energy system and quantifies their potential impacts on hydrogen markets.
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, with many current and potential uses in the chemical and refining industries, manufacturing, and transportation. Producing it can also help resolve challenges related to integrating high levels of variable renewables on the grid.
The Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office in the US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy is leading the [email protected] Initiative to advance affordable hydrogen production, transport, storage and utilisation in multiple energy sectors.
Through the initiative, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) analysts—in partnership with researchers from Argonne National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and industry experts – assessed the technoeconomic potential of realising an integrated hydrogen energy system by the mid-21st century for the 48 contiguous US states.
