Indranil Ghosh shares part one in a two part series that makes a case for the hydrogen economy, and links to an interview with Hervé Touati, Executive Director at Available Power, and Frank Wouters, Global Lead Green Hydrogen at Worley.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Powering Prosperity Weekly.

This weekly newsletter looks at issues relating to the Global Economic Transition that will play out over the coming 20-30 years (see my  introductory article on LinkedIn for additional context).

 In Part 1 of a two-part series on the hydrogen economy, this week we attempt to answer perhaps the most important sustainability question of all: what is required to transition the planet onto a net zero carbon emissions? 

 It is a highly ambitious target and right now we are not doing enough. Just installing renewable energy like wind and solar will still leave us far away from reaching this target, as the International Energy Agency has argued. We will need other technologies like hydrogen, which as the chart below shows, has huge potential to decarbonize our economies.
