POWER TO MOLECULES: TRENDS, DEVELOPMENTS AND APPLICATIONS
Renewable electricity is expected to decarbonize a large share of the EU energy consumption by 2050 while Hydrogen is a key priority to achieve the European Green Deal and Europe’s clean energy transition. Therefore, hydrogen is enjoying a renewed and rapidly growing attention in Europe and around the world. Hydrogen can be used as a feedstock, a fuel, or an energy carrier and for storage. It has many possible applications across industry, transport, power, and buildings sectors. For hydrogen to contribute to climate neutrality, it needs to achieve a far larger scale and its production must become fully decarbonized.
Hydrogen has a strong potential to bridge some of the technology gap, as a vector for long term renewable energy storage, complementary to batteries ensuring back up for seasonal variations and connecting production locations to more distant demand centres and for transport. Furthermore, hydrogen can replace fossil fuels in some carbon intensive industrial processes, such as in the steel or chemical sectors, lowering greenhouse gas emissions and further strengthening global competitiveness for those industries.
Therefore, in the integrated energy system of the future hydrogen so called “renewable hydrogen” will play a role, alongside renewable electrification, and a more efficient and circular use of resources in a total decarbonized world.
