Hydrogen identified as ‘Potential Key Accelerator’ of energy transition and decarbonization during the 10th Assembly of IRENA

January 14, 2020 |

In the United Arab Emirates, at the 10th Assembly of IRENA, participants of a ministerial roundtable on hydrogen identified hydrogen produced by renewable energy as a “potential key accelerator” of the energy transition and enabler for wider global decarbonization.  The Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) believes that “Hydrogen can help overcome many difficult energy challenges. It can decarbonize hart-to-abate-sectors like steel, chemicals, tucks ships and planes. Hydrogen can also enhance energy security by diversifying the fuel mix and providing flexibility to balance grids.” The Director-General of the Energy Conservation and Renewable Energy Department of METI Japan reinforced the position of the IEA director by stating that Japan hopes to make a “marketable tool for the future. For that, we need infrastructure and pipelines. Furthermore, hydrogen can be a tradable energy of the future.”
