Wind for renewable hydrogen is a key component to achieve net-zero

The use of wind energy as the raw materials for the production of renewable hydrogen is being promoted by WindEurope as it actively engages in the political development around renewable hydrogen.

Produced via electrolysis based on electricity from renewable sources such as wind and solar, renewable hydrogen does not result in carbon emissions and is one of the most compatible solutions to meet the objectives set out in the Green Deal with targets carbon neutrality by 2050.

Pioneering green hydrogen, Giles Dickson, WindEurope CEO, said, “Europe has committed to decarbonise its energy system. Renewable electricity will take care of most of that. But there are parts of the energy system we can’t electrify. Here renewable hydrogen is going to need to play an important role. Producing renewable hydrogen will require a massive scale-up of electrolysers; and of renewables, the raw material for electrolysis.”

“Wind is already 16% of Europe’s electricity. But Europe will need many more wind farms to meet the demand for renewable electricity. And to deliver Europe’s aspirations of being a global leader in renewable hydrogen technology and solutions. As the voice of Europe’s wind industry, WindEurope is actively engaging in the political development around renewable hydrogen.”
