Green hydrogen business developer H2 Energy and Trafigura have published this whitepaper to coincide with Transport Day at the COP26 climate talks taking place in Glasgow, United Kingdom. It calls for governments to act quickly on a range of policy measures to incentivise private sector investment and kick-start zero-emission hydrogen trucking ecosystems across Europe.
Trucking is only one of many possible use cases for hydrogen. However, it makes economic sense to make trucking an early priority, because most market projections suggest trucking will be one of the first applications to be economic as hydrogen production costs decline. As economies of scale are reached in the sector, it will enable the use of low-carbon hydrogen across all sectors that need it to decarbonise.
