Accelerating the transition: How renewables are pushing green hydrogen to displace fossil fuels

As the global energy transition gains momentum, green hydrogen is emerging as a promising resource to enable a shift from fossil fuels to power vehicles, industrial operations and national power systems with renewables.

Green hydrogen production can draw an electrical generation from wind and solar projects to power electrolysis, providing a way to extract additional value from renewables project while accelerating a reduction in emissions.

But, with hydrogen produced through electrolysis estimated by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) to have made up just 5% of global production in 2019, the sector will need an integrated policy approach, substantial investment and rapid innovation in the coming years to reach its potential, and for the high production costs to fall.
