Green Hydrogen for Development: An Alternative to Natural Gas

It is well accepted that hydrogen and its carriers, such as ammonia and methanol, will play a part in our future global energy system. Despite significant uncertainty in future hydrogen demand, one thing is clear: the use of hydrogen is set to increase.

To understand this, several important questions must be considered, including:

  • How will hydrogen likely be used?
  • How does green hydrogen production compare to that of blue hydrogen (cost and emissions)?
  • How can green hydrogen be cost-competitive with current day alternatives?
  • Where geographically will green hydrogen be low-cost to produce?
  • In which regions will green hydrogen demand be greatest?
  • What are the trade implications?

By reviewing the current literature, this report investigates each of these questions, highlighting uncertainty and knowledge gaps. Read or download the full report below to find out more
