Hydrogen: Prospects Toward Net Zero

Session Theme 5 of COPE-BEST 2022

In recent years, hydrogen has been seen as an important part of the energy mix to ensure net zero GHG emissions. Renewable energy-based hydrogen (green hydrogen) has great potential to replace fossil fuel-dependent applications, including heating applications in industries and transportation. It is interesting to see how green, blue, and grey hydrogen can synergise their roles in the energy mix during energy transition to achieve net GHG emissions in the coming years. Section 5 highlights the hydrogen economy and its application for different sectors, including industry and transportation.
