Electrolysers set for key role in transition to net-zero carbon

Huge growth potential seen in global market, with room for both mature and new technologies

Hydrogen energy is set to play a vital part in the transition towards zero-carbon economies, with estimates that it could contribute 20pc of the required greenhouse gas emission reductions needed to achieve global targets by 2050. The potential uses of hydrogen in industrial markets and domestic applications are wide-ranging. Hydrogen offers traditional industrial sectors challenged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with the possibility of zero-carbon molecules and process improvement. This is particularly attractive to sectors such as chemicals, steel and refining that require high-grade heat, where decarbonisation may be difficult to achieve through electrification alone. For domestic cu
