Hydrogen4EU Report (2022 edition)
The 2022 edition of the Hydrogen for Europe study provides an update to its assessment of hydrogen’s contribution to achieving climate neutrality, considering the key evolutions, developments and shifts in focus that have happened since spring 2021. The modelling framework was notably updated to account for a progressive phase-out of Russian energy imports. It also includes methane emissions associated with the production, transport and use of natural gas and low-carbon hydrogen in Europe, along their full value chains. It considers a gradual reduction of combined CO2 and methane emissions to net-zero by 2050, in line with the European Climate Law.
Hydrogen4EU Report (2021 edition)
The study's first edition, published in May 2021, confirmed the expectations that hydrogen will play a key role in Europe’s decarbonisation efforts. The 2021 edition put into perspective the value of diversification in technologies and supply routes. For hydrogen, in particular, it showed the complementarities between the production of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen and imports from non-European countries, to achieve a quick upscaling of the hydrogen value chain and de-risk the European energy transition.
