Hydrogen from Natural Gas - The Key to deep decarbonisation
In the public discussion, decarbonising through electrification is often a foregone conclusion. Pöyry has investigated whether an alternative pathway that allows the inclusion of hydrogen can provide a more resilient route to decarbonisation.
In 2018, Pöyry published its seminal study “Fully decarbonising Europe’s energy system by 2050”, which recognised and analysed the changes required to energy use in order to achieve full decarbonisation of Europe’s energy system by 2050.
This new study builds on this analysis and highlights the potential of hydrogen produced from natural gas to contribute in all parts of the energy sector, i.e. in heating, transport and power.
The report, which was commissioned by Zukunft ERDGAS, can be downloaded below.
The full versionof the original study is still available to Pöyry clients, if you are interested in purchasing this or investigating other pathways to decarbonise the energy system please contact Richard Sarsfield-Hall or Benedikt Unger.
