Building on previous studies around Europe’s opportunities on its Energy Transition path the World Energy Council launched a report titled ‘Hydrogen – industry as a catalyst, accelerating the decarbonisation of our economy to and post 2030’.
Decarbonisation of energy usage is one of the biggest challenges facing industries globally. Energy usage both as a feedstock and as a source of heat and power need to be rapidly decarbonised with renewable electrons and molecules assuming a much larger share of primary energy consumption.
In this report we look at feedstock applications and energetic usage options of hydrogen in industries. The report explains how developing hydrogen-based production and production processes in the industry can serve as a catalyst to substantial decarbonisation of the economies as a whole.
The report looks at pathways to make and use hydrogen in a much more cost efficient way, calculating what is needed to scale and scope up blue and green hydrogen applications, thus significantly accelerating the decarbonisation process.
