Hydrogen for Europe
It is released in view of the main ‘Hydrogen for Europe’ report which is currently being developed by research institutes SINTEF and IFPEN. Delivery expected end of 2020.
The Hydrogen for Europe pre-study has been undertaken with the purpose of assessing current
knowledge about the potential hydrogen has to decarbonise the European economy.
- Assessing current knowledge
- Potential of H2 from natgas
- Where the CO2 can be stored
- Overview of European energy system
- Legal barriers and policy needs in Europe
The study investigated available knowledge on the potential role of hydrogen produced from natural gas where the CO2 produced is captured and stored, and possible interplay with hydrogen produced from renewable sources.
Hydrogen is an energy carrier that has no greenhouse gas emissions related to it when being used. Hydrogen can be used in the industry, transport sector, power sector and to heat the building stock. Therefore, hydrogen could potentially be part of the solution to achieve the necessary decarbonisation of Europe’s energy system.
