Hydrogen second pillar of route to net zero – ETC

Fuel will be key in decarbonising sectors that cannot be reached by electrification, says ETC

Hydrogen will play a key role in decarbonising sectors where electrification is not possible, with total demand growing from 115mn t/yr today to 800mn t/yr by 2050, according to thinktank the Energy Transition Commission (ETC). This would mean that—in a scenario where the world has reached net-zero emissions by 2050— hydrogen could account for 15-20pc of total energy demand on top of the 70pc to be met by direct electrification. “Green hydrogen best complement to electrification” Delgado, Iberdrola The vast majority of today’s hydrogen production comes from natural gas and coal, and therefore new production methods for green hydrogen will need to be simultaneously prioritised.
