Low-carbon hydrogen is expected to play a key role in the future energy system, particularly in decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors. Yet several key barriers to adoption remain, and it is likely that at least three times the hydrogen capacity announced so far will be needed by 2030 to stay on track to hit net-zero targets by 2050.
In this Economist Impact insight hour, join us as we identify the barriers to adoption and pinpoint the practical solutions needed to deploy low-carbon hydrogen at scale and meet imminent emission-reduction targets. To what extent can regulation help to accelerate large-scale hydrogen deployment? What investment is needed into renewable-energy capacity, grids and infrastructure? Will the creation of collaborative hydrogen hubs be enough to kick-start the hydrogen economy and reduce the fragility of existing global energy markets? What more is needed to make change happen?
