Oxford Energy Podcast – EU Hydrogen Strategy – A case for urgent action towards implementation
In this OIES podcast James Henderson talks to Martin Lambert about his latest Energy Comment on the EU’s new hydrogen strategy. They review the key elements of the strategy and provide thoughts on the main goals, highlighting the challenges that will be faced in meeting hydrogen production targets, in particular via the “green hydrogen” route. They also discuss the plans for expanding the consumption of hydrogen in Europe and assess the infrastructure questions that will need to be answered if and when hydrogen takes on a greater role in the region, while noting the extensive state support that will be needed in the early years of the implementation of the strategy. Finally, they note the increasing prevalence of hydrogen strategies around the world and discuss the key role that hydrogen can play in the energy transition.
