Looks like green hydrogen favoured over blue 

Power plants fuelled by natural gas will not be classed as “sustainable” or “transition” investments in Europe unless they meet emission limits which are so low that none are currently able to comply, according to draft EU rules. Interested? Join me and over a thousand companies and thought-leaders at the: Business opportunities for the hydrogen economy https://bit.ly/2DwrpHP  professional group.

It seems that bridge 'fuel' was in fact a bridge heading not to fewer emissions but entrenching an emissions-heavy industry further into our future!

If "natural gas", aka methane, isn't considered sustainable or a transition fuel, blue hydrogen should be less so. From well to wheels, blue hydrogen emits even more CO2 than burning methane to generate electricity, and far more than burning methane for appliances and space heating.

With gasoline sales on the ropes, the fossil fuel industry has invented a variety of thermodynamic shell games to market blue hydrogen as a green fuel. Fortunately, policymakers are beginning to realize all chemical energy leaves enough harmful waste product behind to make nuclear waste look trivial.
