Following the Part 1 of the Hydrogen webinar series, which focused on the policy support for hydrogen to achieve its future potential as an ubiquitous energy carrier, the Part 2 will focus on the cost of production to increase hydrogen’s competitiveness. Most of the production cost of green hydrogen is the electricity input. Renewable electricity is already cost competitive in most regions and will continue to become cheaper in the coming years. The next largest cost component is the electrolyser. Following the IRENA report Green Hydrogen Cost Reduction, this webinar will go through the different strategies that will allow achieving a low cost for the electrolyser and will make green hydrogen competitive with other low-carbon pathways.
