Green hydrogen – Investing in the ‘Swiss Army knife of decarbonisation’

Hydrogen can be seen as the answer to the challenge of reaching net-zero emissions as long as it can be produced without emitting CO2 – in other words, as long as it is green. Its characteristics have earned it the moniker ‘the Swiss Army knife of decarbonisation’ [1] – a reference to its uses as a fuel to power a heavy-duty truck or a cargo ship, or to generate electricity, or even its use to store energy.

Unsurprisingly, it figures in government net-zero plans, not least because of its potential to enable the decarbonisation of ’hard-to-decarbonise’ and energy intensive sectors such as steel or shipping.
