Hydrogen will become a competitive energy source and zero-emission fuel

Hydrogen is set to play a key role in the gradual transition to a more sustainable energy economy. Supporting current energy models, it can be generated from natural gas, together with CCS and on-renewable by-products, still offering a lower carbon footprint than fossil fuels. Already today, it can be produced at scale with a zerocarbon footprint by using renewable energy.
Hydrogen has many potential usage areas: for industries, as a source of heat and power, and an ideal buffer to store energy generated from renewable sources.

But, not least, hydrogen is a zero-emissions source of fuel for heavy transports such as ships with great opportunities to decarbonize the sector. Used in a fuel cell – a device which chemically converts the fuel into electricity without the need to burn it - the only emission is water.
The shipping industry currently emits 3% of all greenhouse gases. It takes a lot of energy to haul a ship through the water – and there are an increasing number of ships to haul as world trade grows. Hydrogen has the potential to become a low-cost energy source and the zero-emission fuel for the marine sector.
To the marine, an advantage of the fuel cell solution compared to electric batteries, is the enhanced endurance. By loading hydrogen onboard in sufficient quantities, one can operate on longer routes, sail faster, or operate larger ships with higher power requirements. Hydrogen can come in the form of compressed or liquid hydrogen or stored as ammonia or other organic compounds. We have the solutions.
