Clean Hydrogen Monitor

Abstract

It’s the first of its kind overview showing the state of play with regards to hydrogen technologies in Europe. On an annual basis there will be an update serving as a basis for your investment or political decisions.

OUR MISSION IS – NO EMISSION!
From day 1 Hydrogen Europe promoted clean hydrogen and clean hydrogen technologies as enablers of a decarbonised energy system. We strongly support the adoption of very ambitious climate targets for 2030 and the objective of carbon neutrality in the EU by 2050. Clean hydrogen can help to realise this transition of our energy system in multiple sectors, from energy production, storage and distribution, to end-uses in transport industry, heating and others.

CLEAN HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGIES CAN AND WILL REPLACE
not just fossil-based hydrogen in current (industrial) uses, but also other fossil-based energies such as petrol, diesel and hydrocarbon fuels in the transport sector, coal /coke in the steel sector, natural gas in the heating sector, and other polluting and emitting fuels and feedstocks.

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A SYSTEMIC CHANGE.
The use of clean hydrogen needs adaptations in production schemes, in the infrastructure and in the deployment of hydrogen by the end users. This cannot – of course –be done in a day. Yet, we should not wait for the implementation of the different hydrogen strategies on private, municipal, regional, national or European level until other geographies worldwide race ahead.
