The path to low carbon hydrogen

The challenges and opportunities of hydrogen in the fight against global warming

One of the most effective ways to achieve net-zero goals is to switch from traditional fuels to more eco-friendly sources of energy.

Today, many organisations in the transportation industry, particularly aviators, are beginning to look at a fuel whose only waste product is water: hydrogen. It is not only cleaner than fossil fuels, but it is also three or four times more energetic. But in Europe, over 95% of hydrogen production is carbon-based. This presents the world with both challenges and opportunities.

From compression and storage to transport, the carbon-free hydrogen value chain is full of opportunities. And it isn’t just industry and international business that stands to benefit. There is a multitude of applications for domestic markets and residential use. At Capgemini Invent, we wanted to identify these new areas of growth, highlighting the challenges and potential solutions moving forward. The decarbonisation of the environment begins with the decarbonated production of hydrogen. We provide you with market perspectives and strategies essential for the future.
