The German government has recently announced that it goes all-out for “green hydrogen”, even going as far as claiming that it represents a second Energiewende. But Germany’s “green hydrogen economy” will lean heavily on imports.
Great Britain is looking for a similar (but less aggressive) approach.
The article highlights that many are think:
"Hydrogen has been the next big thing for longer than its advocates would care to remember. Before Elon Musk, Tesla and electric battery technology, it was commonly assumed that we might all, one day, be driving hydrogen cars. The traditional drawback for investors has been the expensive complexity of actually producing the stuff. But in an era of net zero carbon emissions targets, the green utility of the most common chemical element in the universe is turning it into one of the most fashionable products on earth."
What do you think of this new (or somewhat old) trend?
