Hydrogen not a dominant energy carrier, according to researchers
Hydrogen will play an important role in future global climate policy, according to a study – but it will not be the dominant energy carrier of the future. That is the conclusion of a study presented on Thursday by the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (ISI). The researchers expect the greatest demand for hydrogen to be in the transport sector. According to the study, the share in the EU transport sector could be 28 percent of total energy demand in 2050. In international shipping and aviation, the use of H2 synthesis products is set, they say. In car and truck transport, however, the use of hydrogen is less clear.
