From the Editor: The Rocky Road to Hydrogen
If you had asked energy experts two years ago what they thought of the prospects of renewable hydrogen, they would probably have said that it might be one of the solutions we could pursue to get to a zero-emission energy system.
European pipeline operators present optimistic plan
Pipeline operators: European “hydrogen Backbone” possible at “very modest cost”
Green hydrogen costs: HSBC analysts don’t get it
Analysts focus too much on capital costs of electrolysis when they talk about green hydrogen, writes independent energy consultant Mike Parr. They also tend to overestimate overall costs.
Global hydrogen rollout?
The Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), a “green” think tank based in the U.S. and Australia, has published a useful overview of the global state of play in the hydrogen sector with some important findings.
Risks to the climate may be greater than we realise
The use of hydrogen as a fuel could make global warming worse by affecting chemical reactions in the atmosphere, write researchers Michael Prather and Graeme Pearman. They argue that more research needs to be done before we put all our cards on a hydrogen economy.
Vested interests leading us astray?
There is no compelling case for hydrogen replacing natural gas as a major source of heat and power in the UK, argues Tom Baxter, senior lecturer at Aberdeen University.
