Developing a clean hydrogen ecosystem is set to be a central target of a new partnership between the US, Australia, India and Japan.
As part of an in-person meeting between each of the country’s leaders on Sept 24, a partnership on developing the clean hydrogen value chain is seen as a key means of tackling climate issues in the 21st century.
By targeting clean hydrogen, the quad hope to strengthen and reduce the costs of all of the elements along the value chain associated with clean hydrogen.
This could allow companies to scale the production of hydrogen whilst all support industries in transitioning to the clean energy carrier by providing a cost-competitive alternative to fossil fuels.
To tackle this issue, the quad with look to support technology development whilst also strengthening the production aspect of clean hydrogen.
As well as this, identification and development of the delivery infrastructure will be supported to allow the safe transportation of hydrogen in addition to storage and distribution for end-use applications.
This could stimulate the market demand for clean hydrogen and accelerate trade in the Indo-Pacific region.
Not only could this benefit the Indo-Pacific region, the deal pits some of the globes technological leaders together and, with hydrogen a priority in the partnership, it could see innovative new technologies supported to boost the global hydrogen ecosystem.
US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power
What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?
North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.
What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
