OIES Podcast – China and Hydrogen: A Tale of Three Cities

China is by far the world’s largest producer and consumer of hydrogen, mostly from coal and other fossil fuels, and the country has an ambitious hydrogen strategy. In this podcast, we dive into the provincial strategies on hydrogen in China, and specifically discuss a recent paper published by the Institute entitled, China’s hydrogen development: A tale of three cities. The paper looks at the experiences and plans of the pilot hydrogen clusters located in Datong, Shanxi province, Chengdu in Sichuan province, and Zhangjiakou in the northern part of Hebei province, which surrounds Beijing. In this podcast, we are speaking with the paper’s author, Arabella Miller-Wang, recently an Aramco fellow at the Institute and also a Research Assistant at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment of The University of Oxford, as well as with Michal Meidan, director of the China Energy Programme at OIES, and with Martin Lambert, who heads hydrogen research at the OIES.
