Energy efficient clean hydrogen solutions
Why hydrogen is the fuel of the future
As 47% of the world’s industries aren’t compatible with electrification, we will need viable alternatives to fully move away from fossil fuels. Clean hydrogen will be one of them. In fact, the growing demand for green and blue hydrogen means that it could represent over 20% of the world’s energy demand by 2050.
Hydrogen is a suitable energy carrier and feedstock for many applications, especially in the hard-to-abate sectors. Providing that it comes from renewable and low-carbon sources, it could be a vital component on the road to net-zero. We can already see the key role that hydrogen, and its derivatives, will play in several industries, like chemical and steel production. It can also be used as fuel in marine and on/off road transportation sectors, as well as providing flexible power generation.
