Hydrogen Economist Keynote Address Monday 15 November 2021

As a clean energy carrier, feedstock and fuel, green hydrogen can facilitate the large-scale integration of renewables into the energy system, offering new solutions for hard-to-decarbonise industries, market diversification, security of energy supply and economic growth. Although technology, economic and policy challenges have to be overcome, the potential of green hydrogen promises an array of opportunities, not only for businesses but also for countries as they seek to meet Paris Agreement targets and progress towards net-zero commitments. What role should green hydrogen have in the future energy mix? How can governments support each stage of technology readiness, market penetration and market growth to promote hydrogen use? How can green hydrogen help NOCs and IOCs future-proof their businesses and make them fit-for-purpose in a zero-carbon future?

Leadership Debate - Conference Hall B Tuesday 16 November 2021

Both gas and hydrogen have been identified as the fuels of the future. Both are seen as low-emissions alternatives to coal and crude oil, and governments and companies are investing heavily in promoting their use. However, both energy sources have their drawbacks; gas, while cleaner than crude oil, remains a fossil fuel, and emissions across its value change can be significant. By contrast, decarbonised hydrogen, has immense potential, but the technology and investments required to make it broadly commercial and competitive are huge. What will be the fuel of choice by 2030?
