The cost of oil, natural gas and electricity have hit record heights – an energy crisis that has been felt around the world, and amplified by Russia’s war on Ukraine since February 2022.

With countries around the globe cutting Russian ties, a nation that holds dominant power over oil and gas supplies, it forces governments and economies to lead the change. So, despite this energy uncertainty, there’s a silver lining of action. Governments, businesses, and societies all have a role to play in accelerating the transition away from fossil-fuel reliance, towards greener energy sources.

This “butterfly effect” of sustainable momentum is set to influence the energy landscape as we know it:

So, how far away are we from green hydrogen being a niche, buzzword to a mainstream source of energy? And what’s the role of energy and cleantech companies in supporting this movement?

1. Making green hydrogen cost efficient to produce

2. Making it competitive to buy and sell

3. Making it accessible for all communities

4. And last but not least, helping to generate demand by educating and raising collective awareness of its significant role towards achieving a net-zero world

Is it possible to reach the estimated 200Mt of clean hydrogen by 2030, in order to achieve net-zero? This reportedly needs a two-fold scale up of production as it stands.
