Renewable Gas Markets

Hydrogen can be used as fuel in the transport sector, or heat generation in industrial, residential, and commercial sectors, as well as power generation. Currently it is neither as cheap and convenient as coal or natural gas nor as versatile as electricity. Hydrogen is an energy carrier, not an energy source; it needs energy from other sources to produce it. Hydrogen production typically comes from unabated hydrocarbons, but deployment of carbon capture and storage and water electrolysis to produce hydrogen from renewables could create an economic, low-carbon option in the future.

Available as part of the Global Clean Energy Technology service, the Hydrogen and Renewable Gas Forum provides end-to-end coverage of the global hydrogen value chain. The analysis is undertaken at a regional level, with reports and models for all the main consuming and producing regions. The goal of the forum is to produce an objective and balanced assessment of the prospects for hydrogen and renewable gas as part of future energy use. 

Clients receive a continuous cycle of data and analytics-driven research covering:

  • Policy, technology, market issues, and drivers
  • Capex, opex, and input energy prices for hydrogen production cost for key technologies
  • Capex and opex for hydrogen transportation and storage options by benchmark volume and distance
  • Full energy balance for benchmark years 2020, 2025, 2030, 2040, and 2050
  • Plausible demand and supply for hydrogen and renewable gas for these benchmark years
  • Corporate strategies and business models for deployment
  • Emerging trends: drivers and implications on the outlooks
  • Excel models for levelized cost of hydrogen and renewable gas production and automotive fuel cell cost outlooks
  • Global database of power to X projects
