Green Hydrogen: Present and Future role in the energy transition and decarbonization
Decarbonizing our economy with the goal of "neutral emissions" in the EU by 2050 is much
more challenging than we imagine.
75% of CO2 current emissions are associated with transport, industry, and residential uses.
Less than 25% of emissions come from the generation of electricity, so it is not just a matter of
stopping coal, fuel or natural gas power plants.
In other words, the consumption of energy from fossil fuels is 3 times higher than the
consumption of electricity, which leaves us with two complementary alternatives: electrifying as
much fossil fuel applications as we can and using “neutral emission” alternative fuels.
Green hydrogen, due to its versatility and “easy” obtention using renewable energies, will
certainly play a key role in the decarbonisation of our economy. The "modularity" of the
electrolysis systems will allow the possibility of “in situ" green hydrogen generation, close to the
points of consumption. Green hydrogen will also play a very important role in energy storage
