The New Energy Economy: A Hydrogen Future?

In a world recovering from the COVID-19 crisis, green energy is poised to be a key driver in the revitalisation of the global economy. An opportunity to reinvent the current energy economy presents itself as a way forward through infrastructure stimulus spending while simultaneously addressing the greatest existential threat to humanity – climate change.

As the world alters the current trajectory of unsustainable carbon emissions, profound changes to the current energy economy will take place. Fossil fuels will largely be replaced in the coming decades by green alternatives. In order to limit warming to a 1.5 degree maximum, countries across the planet will need to work together to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.1

Whitehelm Capital's latest feature article focuses on the potential role of hydrogen in a new energy economy. Whitehelm evaluates different sectors and the viability of hydrogen-based solutions that could be applied. Through this examination, they also discuss what other alternatives might play a role in decarbonisation, including battery electrics.
