The report offers a comprehensive perspective on market deployment around the world, investment momentum as well as implications on cost competitiveness of hydrogen solutions.
Key Findings Outlined in the Report:
- Hydrogen is gathering strong momentum as a key energy transition pillar
- Deployment and investments: Announced hydrogen investments have accelerated rapidly in response to government commitments to deep decarbonization with over 200 announced projects totaling $300 billion in spending
- Supply: If scaled up with the right regulatory framework, clean hydrogen costs can fall faster than expected
- Distribution: Cost-efficient transmission and distribution required to unlock hydrogen applications
- End applications: Falling clean hydrogen costs and application specific cost drivers improve the cost competitiveness of hydrogen applications
Critically, the report recognizes multiple hydrogen applications that can be the most cost competitive low-carbon solutions from a total cost of ownership perspective, highlighting hydrogen-based boilers for various low-grade, mid-grade and high-grade heating applications.
