Hydrogen has recently emerged to play a key role in a climate-neural economy. Green hydrogen produced with renewable electricity is a zero-emission energy carrier. Among other measures, green and low-carbon hydrogen can help decarbonize high-emitting sectors, including the steel, chemical and transport sectors.
Against this background, there is a debate about the risks, benefits, competitiveness and sustainability of low-carbon hydrogen. While this debate is taking place at the level of individual EU Member States, for the development of a harmonized European hydrogen economy, it is desirable to foster exchange on this topic at the European level, notably from the sustainable finance perspective.
