Creating a market for hydrogen
7th May 2021, 2:52 pm
DWF’s energy team examine the levers that could unlock the hydrogen market in Europe and beyond.
Hydrogen is a powerful energy vector, identified by the European Commission as integral to meeting the Paris Agreement’s goals on decarbonisation in the sectors of heavy industry, long-range transport, and home heating. This has led to the emergence of an abundance of regional-level and national-level strategies on hydrogen, targeting rapid, decisive development of hydrogen technologies to enable a coordinated transition towards a net zero-carbon economy.
In this report, we consider:
- How will hydrogen scale up and what future markets will emerge?
- What role will the EU Hydrogen Strategy and the upcoming UK hydrogen strategy play in enabling the transition to a net-zero carbon integrated economy?
- What policy, legal and regulatory frameworks are required to support a fast-growing, cost-effective, reliable and low-carbon hydrogen industry?
