Hydrogen set to spread its wings

From FORESIGHT Climate & Energy, Watt Matters is a podcast all about the energy transition and the shift to a decarbonised economy.

The branches of the burgeoning green hydrogen sector are spreading slowly around the world. This creates huge uncertainty but also significant opportunities for businesses and governments the world over to leverage a whole new industry.

The guest on this week’s podcast is Sara Edmonson from Australia-based developer Fortescue Future Industries—a company that solely focuses on green hydrogen and ammonia production.

Edmonson believes green hydrogen technology is ready to scale up, but issues around permitting of renewables and new other projects need to be sorted out. Meanwhile, the green hydrogen sector offers export opportunities for emerging markets that have significant renewables potential but not the grid infrastructure to support it.

Enjoy the show!

We're seeing a lot of excitement and hype from hydrogen, but what we really need is to see it take that next leap. I'm wondering when we'll first have some groundbreaking utility leaders extolling the virtues and putting projects into action rather than just the investors and hydrogen-specific companies, that will be a sign that it's ready for prime time!
