The availability of green hydrogen on an industrial scale and at affordable prices will determine the prospects of industry decarbonisation. What are necessary steps for the EU and other G7 nations to speed up a successful green hydrogen market?
Based on a discussion with key stakeholders from civil society, industry, politics, and think tanks, organised by Germanwatch and Stiftung KlimaWirtschaft, we make three main recommendations:
First: Finalise strong enabling regulatory frameworks to create demand, mobilise investments, and roll out green hydrogen projects
Second: Build sustainable and people-centred hydrogen partnerships
Third: Prevent a race to the bottom and lead the way forward in international fora beyond G7
