Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Portugal are “good bets” to emerge as early exporters of renewable hydrogen in a future hydrogen economy, according to new ICIS research.

Of the seven countries that contain bidding zones at or above the 90% share of renewables, ICIS data shows that this quartet are all projected to have hydrogen supply in excess of demand by 2030.
