Powering a low-carbon future
The European Commission is looking to scale up renewable hydrogen projects across polluting sectors from chemicals to steel in an effort to meet it’s net-zero emissions goal by 2050. EU countries can produce green hydrogen to boost domestic industries and even for export.
The priority is to develop green hydrogen from wind and solar power, by using big electrolysers and deploy it in sectors hard to decarbonise or where electrification is difficult. Europe needs to develop a green hydrogen industry jointly.
In the attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions several large industry decarbonization projects have emerged in Europe. “Hydrogen has potential to become the fuel that powers a clean economy,” said Kobad Bhavnagri, head of industrial decarbonization for BNEF recently.
By seizing the green hydrogen opportunity, EU countries can lay the foundation for a grand decarbonization project, which makes this continent less depending on imports from undemocratic regions.
Two Dutch farms want to supply energy with green hydrogen.
