The European Hydrogen Strategy: pathways and challenges
The use of hydrogen as an energy carrier in the context of the energy transition has become a very topical issue following the publication of the European Hydrogen Strategy in July 2020. The growth of a low-emission hydrogen market implies major technological, economic and social challenges. This Report offers a reasoned overview of the variables at stake and the main open questions from the point of view of regulation and markets. The analysis is developed with a European perspective, but with an eye to the position of Italy, whose natural gas sector, which is very important in the energy mix, could prove to be a strong point in the presence of adequate addressing and accompanying policies.
