Net zero by 2050: the green hydrogen challenge
The transition to a prosperous, modern and competitive economy is objective of the common worldwide vision. This aims to achieve a net zero society by 2050 through the green hydrogen challenge. Three decades only and more than 400 shared milestones to reach the net zero society by 2050.
What about the biggest challenge? Definitely to decarbonize the energy sectors (electricity, heating and transport), responsible for 73.2% of the CO2 emissions. Beyond, to limit the rise in global temperatures to 1.5°C to hinder the greenhouse effect.
Net zero by 2050 emission means energy transition, intend to drive huge leaps in limit the fossil fuels employ and switch it with the renewables use. The purpose is to transform our means of production, transportation and energy consumption. But also raise the global pledge to net zero emission together with the investments in R&D (UNFCCC).
The hydrogen production through electrolysis stands out from most relevant technological area. In fact, it will give a vital contribution to make in achieving global goals.
The EU intends to install 46GW of electrolyzers to produce up to 11 Mt of green hydrogen by 2030. Thus to help in cutting the greenhouse emission at least by 55% and reducing the carbon footprint and air pollution.
Today, the biggest challenge is producing green hydrogen at accessible costs to replace the grey hydrogen.
FRIEM makes available competences and experience to build a new supply chain to produce green hydrogen through electrolysis.
