Hydrogen and the energy transition.

Ali, Dallia



To justify and know why we need to use Hydrogen the author detailed the emission briefs which showed the emissions from natural gas decreased by 118 Mt in 2022 due to Ukraine war, coal grew to a new all-time high of all-time high of almost 15.5 Gt. Emission from oil grew also grew by 268 Mt in 2022. Around half of the year-on-year increase came from aviation as air travel continued its recovery from pandemic lows. Total transport emissions increased by 2.1% (or 137 Mt), also driven by growth in advanced economies. Nonetheless, emissions would have been higher without the accelerating deployment of low-carbon vehicles. Another challenge the world faces is the increasing energy consumption, therefore the need to increase the use of green renewable energy is vital. However, this also leads to the challenge of intermittency with these sources. Hydrogen is a key player in the world clean energy transition and major contributor to the UK Net Zero Future. H2 will play a pivotal role in achieving an affordable, clean and prosperous economy.
