Hydrogen's time is now

The need to address climate change has never been more urgent. Across the world there's growing momentum around commitments to achieve 'net zero' emissions and limit global warming to 1.5°C.

Countries accounting for more than 50% of global GDP are actively discussing or have already legislated zero emission targets for 2050 at the latest.

The shift required is significant: from a global economy largely driven by fossil fuels, with their accompanying levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, to one of carbon neutrality.

An important piece of the puzzle to reaching net zero commitments is hydrogen, if that hydrogen is produced via a low carbon route.

There's growing consensus that hydrogen will be an important energy carrier in the new energy ecosystem. However, current estimates show that production will need to increase ten fold by 2050 if it's to fulfil its potential as a clean transportation fuel, as a cleaner industry feedstock, and for domestic heat and power.

Hydrogen: a key element to tackling the climate emergency?

The path to net zero

Getting to net zero means reaching the point that any emissions are balanced by absorbing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere. To achieve that and address the challenges of climate change, emissions must be cut drastically from all areas of life, including sectors that are difficult to abate, such as heavy industry, heavy duty vehicles, buses, trains, aviation and domestic heating. And with increasing recognition that hydrogen will be an important energy vector comes the challenge of deploying the technology at scale to support the shift to a hydrogen economy.

 

That means seeking routes to remove and capture carbon from the hydrogen production process (blue hydrogen), and deploying technologies to create hydrogen using renewable energy sources (green hydrogen).

 

JM is putting its science and experience at the heart of solutions that support a cost effective transition to a secure and environmentally sustainable energy system.
