The energy of the future
The European Union aims for decarbonization and reducing dependence on fossil fuels by 2050.
Green hydrogen thus becomes a key element in this energy transition.
The EU’s strategy foresees an increase in the share of green hydrogen in the energy mix, going from the current 2% to 13-14% by 2050. This will require the installation of 800 GW of electrolyzers primarily powered by renewable sources such as wind and photovoltaic energy.
Why did the EU choose hydrogen?
Its ability to be a potent energy carrier makes it an essential tool for storing energy from intermittent renewable sources, such as that produced by wind and solar parks.
In addition to being a zero-emission solution, hydrogen also has a very high energy density, superior to that of gasoline and lithium-ion batteries, making it an eco-friendly substitute for fossil fuels used in transportation and energy generation, as well as a crucial raw material in the chemical industry.
- High energy density per unit of mass
150 times higher compared to lithium-ion batteries
- Long-term storage capability
In various forms: gaseous, liquefied, and in solid carriers
- Safety of storage systems
Guaranteed by new technological solutions that allow usage at pressures of up to 1000 bar
- Lower costs
At the same amount of energy transported, hydrogen costs an order of magnitude less than electric lines
- Short refueling times
For fuel cell vehicles compared to the long recharging times required by battery-powered vehicles
