Hydrogen from Natural Gas – The Key to Deep Decarbonisation


This Discussion Paper was commissioned by Zukunft ERDGAS to contribute to the debate concerning the deep decarbonisation of the European energy sector required to meet the Paris Agreement targets. Previous discussion papers have put forward decarbonisation pathways that rely heavily on ‘All-Electric’ solutions. These depend predominantly on renewable electricity to deliver decarbonisation of all sectors. This paper offers an alternative to an ‘All-Electric’ solution by building an alternative pathway that allows the inclusion of gas based technologies alongside the ‘All-Electric’ pathway technologies. The new pathway demonstrates that hydrogen from natural gas can be an essential complement to renewable electricity. The pathway also considers the benefits of utilising methane pyrolysis technology in Europe to produce zero carbon hydrogen.
