While interest levels in the development of global hydrogen industries have fluctuated over recent decades, today there are a number of trends and activities that distinguish the renewed focus on hydrogen from what has been observed previously.

This includes policy commitments from countries across Europe and Asia as well as increasing investment from multinational technology manufacturers and energy companies.

The primary difference however is that the hydrogen value chain is now underpinned by a series of mature technologies that are being demonstrated in pilot projects globally. Although there is considerable scope for further R&D, this level of maturity has meant that the narrative has shifted from one of technology development to market activation. This involves the transition from emerging technologies to bankable assets, similar to what has recently been observed in the solar PV industry.
