Ambition for a global hydrogen economy

Energy Hydrogen Renewables

Hydrogen is the 'missing link'

The climate emergency is occupying mainstream policy focus in many countries and - with the lack of viable alternatives to achieve the levels of deep decarbonisation consistent with net zero targets - clean hydrogen has unprecedented political and industry momentum.

There is now a clear sense that hydrogen may prove the 'missing link' for countries seeking to achieve a fully functioning, net-zero economy consistent with their Paris Agreement objectives.

Now in its second annual edition, Linklaters — with contributions from our specialists — has put together a detailed analysis of the hydrogen vision that examines:

  1. the key political issues shaping this debate;
  2. use cases favoured by different countries;
  3. what the business models are (and what they might need to be); and
  4. the legal reform needed to bring hydrogen into our everyday lives.
