IRENA | Green Hydrogen for Industry
- Mar 10, 2022 9:04 am GMT
Green hydrogen is benefiting from a new wave of interest due to its potential to make a significant contribution to meeting climate goals and advancing the energy transition. In response, IRENA has been analysing options for the production and consumption of green hydrogen, along with devising policies to support and accelerate its commercialisation and wide adoption.
In 2020 IRENA published an initial report focusing on green hydrogen policies: Green hydrogen: A guide to policy making (IRENA, 2020a). It outlines the main barriers to the uptake of green hydrogen and the key pillars for effective policy making. It also creates a framework for discussion about green hydrogen policy making. The green hydrogen value chain, from production to consumption, consists of multiple elements that are interlinked with the broader energy sector. Each of these element can face specific barriers and challenges. IRENA, therefore, conceived a series of reports focusing on these challenges and the options to overcome them.
The IRENA report, Green hydrogen supply: A guide to policy making, examines the policy options to support the production of green hydrogen by water electrolysis, its transport, and the options for storage (IRENA, 2021a). The present report explores the challenges that green hydrogen faces in the industrial sector and the policy options available to policy makers to address these challenges.
