Agora Studio: Low-carbon Hydrogen: Production technologies & costs

Tuesday, 2 March

7:00 am - 7:30 am (CST) / 02/mar/2021 01:00 pm - 02/mar/2021 01:30 pm
Interest in low-carbon hydrogen as a decarbonization tool reached unprecedented levels in 2020. This interest was driven by favorable policies and funding as well as the expectation of continuing cost reduction of low-carbon hydrogen, mostly “green” hydrogen—electrolysis of water powered by renewables. What are the main drivers behind the expected cost reduction? What obstacles remain to producing clean hydrogen? Could less-mature, low-carbon hydrogen technologies, such as solid oxide electrolysis or methane pyrolysis, be developed and be cost competitive?
