Guidehouse Insights | January 13, 2022

A new report from Guidehouse Insights examines emerging hydrogen end-use candidates that are expected to become mainstays in the future and provides recommendations for industry stakeholders, regulators, and governments. Hydrogen is expected to play a critical role in large-scale decarbonization, however the cost of production from low carbon energy sources can be prohibitive. Governments have developed roadmaps, policies, and subsidies to reduce costs. Yet, scaling the hydrogen economy is expected to also require measures to increase demand. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, emerging hydrogen applications coupled with government policy instruments to stimulate demand can support scaling of the hydrogen economy. "Hydrogen integration is constrained by its alignment with customer preferences and conveniences. Unlocking sustained economies of scale for hydrogen requires a step change in its demand." Shan Chakraborty, senior research analyst with Guidehouse Insights According to the report, stakeholders must not only focus on key sectors for hydrogen innovation, but also mitigate risk to procure investment in the hydrogen infrastructure. These measures must be coupled with government policies applicable to the supply chain. The report, Emerging Hydrogen End Uses, explains emerging hydrogen end-use candidates that are expected to become mainstays in the future.
