New EHB analysis on demand, supply and transport of hydrogen in Europe published
OGE is member of the European Hydrogen Backbone-Initiative. Recently, the initiative published a unique comprehensive analysis of demand, supply and transport of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen in Europe and the UK. The analysis shows impressively:
The total EU and UK demand for hydrogen in 2050 is expected to be 2,300 TWh.
The supply potentials of blue and green hydrogen in 2050 are expected to meet most of this demand.
Depending on the region, imports will also be necessary in some cases.
Gas grids are the cheaper option compared to ships for transporting hydrogen, even over several thousand kilometers. This gives imports from neighboring regions, such as North Africa, a strong advantage over imports from other continents.
