Governments at federal and state levels must put in place policies to encourage both the supply and demand of green hydrogen simultaneously if a properly functioning market is to develop, according to industry experts speaking at the World Hydrogen Summit yesterday. Regulators can provide a stable investment environment to ensure production projects go ahead while also putting in place time-limited subsidies to encourage demand, according to Oliver Bishop, general manager for hydrogen at Shell. “We need to make sure we synchronise the demand piece with the supply—that helps all of us get down the cost curve,” he said. “We need to make sure we synchronise demand with supply—that….

Recent “Green Recovery” announcements, National Energy strategies and the prospect of a European Green Deal have all brought Hydrogen back into focus as a key enabler in the race for carbon neutrality. Green hydrogen in particular exceeded expectations in 2020 despite the pandemic, with new records achieved in electrolysis capacity, fuel cell electric vehicle market expansion and several large-scale gigafactories announced. But more efforts are needed to scale up and expand hydrogen use, ensure its low-carbon potential is fully harnessed to deliver on set climate targets and reach NetZero carbon by 2050.
Global government representatives and energy leaders have confirmed their participation at the 2nd World Hydrogen Summit taking place virtually on 9-11 March, with the aim to accelerate efforts and define the hydrogen industry roadmap for the year ahead. The summit programme shifts the conversations from “why” to “how” reflecting the need to maximise the current momentum to accelerate knowledge transfer and increase international hydrogen deployment.
The Summit is produced by the Sustainable Energy Council, in partnership with the City of Rotterdam and the Port of Rotterdam Authority and is sponsored by a an array of organisations leading current hydrogen projects world-wide who will be present through representatives that will speak, connect and build cross-sector partnerships enabling hydrogen projects to become a reality; including: Smartenergy, Shell, Wärtsilä, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group, Alcazar, Shearman & Sterling, McPhy, Star Scientific, Linklaters, Atlas Copco, Advent, DTEK, Queensland Government Australia, Cummins Inc.
