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.
