Exploring innovative technologies to achieve a low carbon future/support the decarbonization of the global economy.
Hydrogen can be used as fuel in the transport sector, or heat generation in industrial, residential, and commercial sectors, as well as power generation. Currently it is neither as cheap and convenient as coal or natural gas nor as versatile as electricity. Hydrogen is an energy carrier, not an energy source; it needs energy from other sources to produce it. Hydrogen production typically comes from unabated hydrocarbons, but deployment of carbon capture and storage and water electrolysis to produce hydrogen from renewables could create an economic, low-carbon option in the future.
The S&P Global Hydrogen and Renewable Gas Forum, part of the Global Clean Energy Technology service, provides detailed analysis for the main potential producers and consumers of hydrogen and renewable gas.
