Global: Hydrogen’s role in the transition to clean energy
A key component on the road to global net-zero is reducing the emissions of those hard-to-decarbonise sectors; chiefly, in heavy industry and long-distance transport, which require either high combustion temperatures or high energy content.
Low-carbon hydrogen, as a possible alternative to fossil fuels in this context, is therefore potentially critical for reaching net-zero and could play an important complementary and enabling role alongside clean electricity in decarbonising our global energy systems.
However, the hydrogen economy starts from a low base. Its applications today are mainly confined to industry and as a potential feedstock. Moreover, most of the hydrogen produced today comes at the cost of significant carbon emissions.
What you will learn:
- How industry and transport could seem to offer the greatest potential for hydrogen use
- The hydrogen and energy forecast till 2050
- Applications for future hydrogen use
Industry in the age of the energy transition
This 5-page report identifies five key themes that will shape our Industry Climate Service research agenda over the course of 2024. The energy transition will have a significant impact on industrial activity this decade across several dimensions. Alongside the need for industry to urgently decarbonise its own activities, it will also play an instrumental role in the production of the low-carbon technologies necessary for decarbonisation in other sectors of the economy.Find Out More

US renewables industry already reaping benefits from the Inflation Reduction Act
Our analysis suggests that even at this early stage investors see the act as a positive stimulus for clean technology companies’ future profits. This is likely to give the US a competitive advantage in the development and commercialisation of hydrogen and other new clean technologies.Find Out More
