edie publishes new business guide on hydrogen for net-zero strategies
edie has published a new Explains guide, detailing all the key business considerations, challenges and opportunities in integrating hydrogen solutions into existing or impending decarbonisation strategies.
Hydrogen is being viewed as a potential solution to carbon-intensive markets, sectors and practices. This new guide explores all the key considerations and how they apply to businesses.
Hydrogen can be produced using a variety of measures and sources, namely natural gas, biomass, nuclear, fossil fuels and renewables. As such, it makes it an attractive fuel proposition for industries like electricity generation and transportation. Under some circumstances, hydrogen can be used in a way where the only by-product is water, making it a viable option for climate and sustainability initiatives and practices. However, the large majority – around 95% – of hydrogen is currently produced using fossil fuels.
As such, businesses are exploring how hydrogen can enable the transition to net-zero emissions. How can hydrogen be utilised by businesses? What are the key considerations? Is hydrogen commercially viable? And what challenges need to be overcome?
This new edie Explains guide answers all these questions and more. Featuring expert analysis in the form of a viewpoint from guide sponsors, Centrica Business Solutions, the new Explains guide will equip readers with a wealth of knowledge as they uncover how they can potentially use this nascent technology.
Centrica Business Solutions’ head of hydrogen William Mezzullo, said: “Clean hydrogen can play a critical role in the net zero transition. It offers a triple-decarbonisation pathway across heat, transport and power sectors – with an ability to tackle hard-to-abate emissions and plug the gaps that other technologies struggle to reach.
“As members of the Hydrogen Taskforce, we’re exploring commercialisation opportunities, including rolling out hydrogen-ready boilers and CHP systems. We’re also supporting National Grid to investigate methods for injecting green hydrogen into the National Transmission System.”
