Building on the world's first-to-market hydrogen assessments launched in December 2019, S&P Global Platts will expand on its North American and European assessments and launch its first hydrogen assessments in Asia.
Platts recognizes hydrogen will play an increasing role in decarbonizing energy markets from generation to transportation. With the goal of bringing price transparency to hydrogen markets, Platts will broaden its coverage of North American markets to include nine regional hydrogen hubs around the US and Canada. Platts also will expand its coverage of European hydrogen production to include three new production pathways from the Netherlands, and will launch new modeled hydrogen assessments for Japan.
Platts also will be broadening its current coverage of hydrogen to the following publications: LNG Daily, Coal Trader International, Polymerscan, Europe and Americas Petrochemicalscan, and the following Service Lines: GCA, PCA and LNG.
For each of the different locations, Platts will publish prices for Steam Methane Reforming production methods, including in some regions for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), along with prices for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Electrolysis, and Alkaline Electrolysis production pathways. The calculated prices will reflect both the commodity production cost and the capital expenditure associated with building a hydrogen facility.
Daily feedstock prices for each different production pathway, along with fixed capital costs, will add up to create a levelized production cost over the lifetime of the plant.
From April 1, 2020, Platts will publish the following prices:
