The ‘Hydrogen Economy’ has been talked about, invested in and debated for over 20 years, but only now is that cause being truly recognised for the role it has in a low carbon future.
Hydrogen has the potential to be the cornerstone of the energy transition, and momentum gathers in this important space every day. At the same time, the notion of the hydrogen economy itself continues to be redefined.
While the drive to phase out the traditional internal combustion engine for hydrogen mobility was the original focus, hydrogen and energy storage have evolved alongside automotive applications and there is an increasing realisation that hydrogen has the power to decarbonise so many industries and walks of life. In fact, it’s thought that most of the value creation in a hydrogen economy would occur in advanced industries.
To achieve this hydrogen vision, companies across the value chain will need to step up their efforts in hydrogen production, infrastructure roll-out, and end-user adoption. Scaling up is arguably the hottest topic today in the hydrogen energy sector, indeed, it is clearly an underlying theme throughout much of the exclusive insight and opinion in this very edition of H2 View. But scaling up is exactly that – a huge challenge that presents many-splintered questions and topics, not least:
