Clean hydrogen has the potential to decarbonise transport, heating and heavy industry, as well as offering viable long-term energy storage.

But is it the best option in each of these sectors (and their sub-sectors)? Will we able to produce enough clean hydrogen to meet future demand? And should this supply be green, blue or both?

In Recharge’s first Power Station podcast — The Future of Hydrogen: Demand and Supply, sponsored by Shell — we take a deep dive into future H2 demand and supply with Paul Bogers, Shell’s vice-president - hydrogen, and senior hydrogen analyst, Gniewomir Flis, from think-tank Agora Energiewende.

Topics discussed include:

  • The future roles for hydrogen in cars and trucks
  • Whether hydrogen should replace natural gas in heating
  • The pros and cons of EV battery swapping
  • The speed of the carbon capture and storage (CCS) build-out and its impact on blue H2
  • The potential impact of carbon pricing and other policy levers such as carbon contracts for difference
    Sponsored by Shell
  • The role for regional industrial clusters to stimulate early clean-hydrogen demand
  • The role of China in the commercialisation of clean hydrogen
  • The potential impacts of gigawatt-scale projects such as the giant NortH2 and AquaVentus offshore wind-to-hydrogen schemes involving Shell, and the 67GW HyDeal Ambition project.
