While hydrogen has significant potential in certain sectors to become the best or only decarbonisation option available, scaling up low-carbon hydrogen production in such a short time frame bears many risks and dependencies. It is vital to recognise and manage these risks and dependencies during the process of scaling up hydrogen’s role in the energy system to deliver rapid emissions reduction and maximise the whole-system benefits that are achievable. Risks inherent within all of these areas must be managed if hydrogen production and end use are to be low carbon and therefore contribute to achieving net zero.

This report outlines in detail the most critical issues related to the scaling up and integration of blue and green hydrogen into the wider energy system.

The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.

If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
