Access Case Study


• High impact of levies on electricity and subsequently hydrogen price

• Electrolysis not yet able to compete with reforming of natural gas on production cost of hydrogen

• Currently high load factor rather than flexible operation of electrolyser leads to lowest hydrogen cost

• Supporting hydrogen as low carbon feedstock for refineries through the Renewable Energy Directive is a key policy option to scale up electrolytic hydrogen in the short term

• Sustainability criteria for renewable hydrogen from grid connected electrolysers to be adopted by EU COM by end of 2021; these could have significant impact on the scale up of electrolytic hydrogen
