As we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the seminal book by Jeremy Rifkin “The Hydrogen Economy” and the astronomical amount of non-sense it contained, we wanted to have a real look at the prospect of Green Hydrogen.  Beyond bombastic claims such as “History will look back at 2022 as the year that hydrogen started to reshape the world”, we have decided to dig deep into the technology and prospect of Electrolysers.

And there is no better guest to talk about electrolysers than Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power. ITM Power is one of the largest electrolyser manufacturers in the world, and has deep pockets to pursue a very aggressive expansion. What is true now, and how does the horizon looks like for green hydrogen?

In other words, is Green Hydrogen a miracle or a mirage?

"And there is no better guest to talk about electrolysers than Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power. ITM Power is one of the largest electrolyser manufacturers in the world, and has deep pockets to pursue a very aggressive expansion."

Laurent, at the risk of seeming like the eternal pessimist: the CEO of "one of the largest electrolyser manufacturers in the world",  "deep pockets to pursure a very aggressive expansion", is the last person I would want to hear from if I wanted an impartial assessment of the value of green hydrogen for fighting climate change.

If everyone else here is only interested in making a quick buck (in geologic time, anyway), my apologies - there may be no better guest than Graham. But I'm not that pessimistic.
