If the hydrogen economy is to advance, it must receive investment support of $70 billion by 2030. That’s according to the Hydrogen Council, which says that the cost to produce and distribute hydrogen from clean energy sources will fall by as much as 50% over the next decade.
Today most hydrogen is produced in reactions involving coal and natural gas, and is considered “grey hydrogen” that does nothing to limit CO2 emissions. The goal, though, is to produce hydrogen from low-carbon energy sources and to expand its use into the transportation and power generation sectors.
