Interesting high level analysis of wind and hydrogen

The authors call for:


Equal treatment

Define renewable hydrogen as a primary energy carrier, just like renewable electricity. Apply this equality throughout all the different directives, legislations, creating a level playing field. Hydrogen as a primary energy carrier will then take a very fast and high flight. It will become one of the major energy carriers for the energy transition since it is a cheap form of renewable energy with a limited spatial impact as compared to electricity. The energy system as a whole will become more robust, due to the high reliability of pipelines and since hydrogen is a form of chemically stored energy that can be buffered and offers new time constants for logistic optimisation.
