As 2021 draws to a close and the energy world starts to look ahead to 2022, there seems little doubt that the role of hydrogen will loom ever larger over government energy policy, both here in the UK and globally. So what specifically should we expect?
Aberdeen could become the first city to be powered entirely by hydrogen as soon as the end of the decade under ambitious new plans.
Kellas Midstream has announced plans to develop of a low-carbon blue hydrogen production facility in Teesside.
Blue hydrogen should have no role in the energy transition, a new report from Earthjustice has declared, while green hydrogen has a narrow set of opportunities.
A leading European research body has hit back at claims blue hydrogen is “difficult to justify” due to its carbon emissions.
The chairman of a leading hydrogen lobby group stepped down earlier this week over its support for blue hydrogen.
Bosses from all corners of the energy sector have shared their thoughts on the UK Government’s flagship Hydrogen Policy.
The UK Government has pledged to support the advancement of both green and blue hydrogen as part of plans to create a “thriving” low carbon sector.
Neptune Energy has signed a number of agreements in order to progress its plans for a blue hydrogen – CCS scheme on England's east coast.
Abu Dhabi is seeking investors to help build hydrogen export facilities, as Middle Eastern oil producers step up plans to sell what’s seen as a crucial fuel in the transition to cleaner energy.
A new industry report has described blue hydrogen as an “essential” part of the UK’s net zero ambitions.
Although key barriers remain, the worldwide potential of hydrogen is vast. Some estimate an investment pipeline of $300 billion, with hydrogen possibly supplying 18% of global energy by 2050. The Gulf States are particularly well placed to capitalise as producers and exporters of clean hydrogen.
A rebound in the oil price is unlikely to derail future hydrogen investments, industry experts have predicted.
A war of words is raging over blue hydrogen.
The number of hydrogen projects in development globally is on course to exceed those currently in operation by the end of the year, according to new figures.
Crown Estate Scotland is tendering a contract, worth tens of thousands of pounds, to study the carbon capture and storage (CCS) market.
Oil and gas firms Shell and Harbour Energy have struck a deal to become equal-equity partners alongside Storegga in an Aberdeenshire carbon capture and storage (CCS) project.
The world’s energy consumption will change “profoundly” if it is to meet the Paris Agreement goals, Wood Mackenzie has said in a new report.
Blue hydrogen will be fundamental in kick starting the establishment of a “hydrogen economy” in the UK, an industry expert has said.
News that the UK government is pondering a North Sea exploration ban has been met with howls of protest – mostly from those who’ve talked a good energy transition but haven’t done very much about it. But re-focusing the sector via progressive change to the licensing regime isn’t “virtue signaling”, as one industry insider put it. It’s downright essential - and long overdue.
The number of European hydrogen projects in the pipeline is almost double that of current operational projects, according to new research.
“We mustn’t confuse the public with Extinction Rebellion” – UK Energy Minister Kwasi Kwarteng sets out case for CCUS
Setting out why carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is “absolutely essential” to hitting net zero targets will be key in garnering public support for the technology, according to the UK’s energy minister.
There’s a danger that the deployment of hydrogen technology could be impacted by wider “government indecision” around what the future energy mix will look like.
