PO024: The hydrogen economy: How is the global energy industry rising to the challenge?
Carlos Albero, Market Area Manager Iberia, DNV
As recently as three years ago, clean hydrogen energy was on the fringes of the energy-transition conversation – an outlier solution, at least for the short or medium term. Today, it is rapidly moving into the mainstream, and for many, it is essential to a net-zero energy future. As the world is heading for hydrogen, the route is uncertain, and many questions remain. To meet the targets of the Paris Agreement, the world needs to transition faster to a deeply decarbonized energy system. In addition to energy efficiency gains, this will require greater renewable power generation and electrification, and the scaling of technologies to remove the carbon from fossil fuels. Hydrogen will be needed to connect and enable these paths. This paper will talk about the status and outlook for the emerging hydrogen economy based on new research published by DNV. The research draws on a survey of more than 1,100 senior energy professionals and in-depth interviews with industry executives, on emerging hydrogen value chains, from production to consumption.
