Green hydrogen has become a cornerstone of Europe's energy transition strategy. Technological and economic advances and explicit political and corporate support over the last two years have brought green hydrogen to the forefront of the energy and climate change agendas of many countries. Thus, green hydrogen is poised to play a crucial role in realising net zero-emissions energy systems envisioned by 2050 by these nations.

Supplying hydrogen to industrial users is now a major business around the world. Demand for hydrogen, which has grown more than threefold since 1975, continues to rise - almost entirely supplied from fossil fuels, with 6% of global natural gas and 2% of global coal going to hydrogen production.

With revenues for green hydrogen projected to exceed $200 billion by 2027, diverse opportunities will open up not only for renewable projects for its production, but also to use it as a long-term energy storage technology, to replace fossil fuels for mobility, and to become a major part of manufacturing and process industries. The transition to green hydrogen could provide $11 trillion of infrastructure investment opportunities over the next 30 years making a global business focus. The number of countries with polices that directly support investment in hydrogen technologies is increasing, along with the number of sectors they target

Why Green Hydrogen

Green hydrogen is hydrogen that is produced using an electrolyser, powered by renewable energy, such as wind, solar, hydraulic or biomass plant. From an electrochemical reaction, the electrolyser will split water into dihydrogen and dioxygen and produce hydrogen. The mode of production is clean and does not produce carbon.

This differs from other forms of hydrogen product, notably so-called 'blue' and 'grey' hydrogen. Blue hydrogen is produced from natural gas and, unlike green hydrogen, results in carbon dioxide being produced, but this is captured by a carbon capture, utilisation and storage system. With 'grey' hydrogen, hydrogen is produced from using fossil fuels and the carbon produced in this process is not captured at all.

One of the main benefits of green hydrogen production, besides its clean carbon footprint, is the fact that the hydrogen facility is powered by the excess electricity produced during peak periods and which cannot otherwise be injected in a saturated power grid.

The need to decarbonize the power generation, mobility and heat energy markets in the face of the rapidly evolving climate reality leads the green transition. While the energy transition is in a nascent stage, development of hydrogen markets and projects is gathering pace and traction. Hydrogen has potential uses in various end-use sectors, including industry, transport, power and distributed energy.

Around the world, a green hydrogen rush is underway, and many companies, investors, governments, and environmentalists believe it is an energy source that could help end the reign of fossil fuels and slow the world's warming trajectory.

Declining costs of renewables, along with the necessity of curtailing greenhouse gas emissions, is shifting the potential growth of hydrogen upwards in political and business perspectives.  Apparently, hydrogen technologies will supply 18 per cent of the world’s total energy needs in future and will be able to power around 425 million vehicles around the world.

The transition to green hydrogen could provide $11 trillion of infrastructure investment opportunities over the next 30 years making a global business focus. The number of countries with polices that directly support investment in hydrogen technologies is increasing, along with the number of sectors they target.

Governments across the world have put hydrogen at the centre of their decarbonisation plans with billions of dollars allocated to stimulating the market. Hydrogen is today enjoying unprecedented momentum. The world should not miss this unique chance to make hydrogen an important part of our clean and secure energy future.

While the production of green hydrogen has captured the much-needed political and industry support, transport and storage of green hydrogen pose a huge challenge in the future. To address these issues, existing gas pipeline operators will present their perspectives and plans to build the needed infrastructure for transporting and storing green hydrogen.

Green Hydrogen Forum, featuring a high-level agenda, will bring together renewable power generators, project developers, debt providers and investors, government and private sector decision-makers, chemical and mobility industries representatives, gas grids and off-takers, among others, to define a new energy era fuelled by hydrogen.
