The 'hydrogen economy' ambition has gathered momentum in recent years with hydrogen touted as the clean molecule the world needs to secure a sustainable energy future. Hydrogen is clean-burning, can be produced from renewable sources of power, and therefore has a promising role to play in the global effort to address the effects of climate change.
Substantial demand-side and supply-side investment is required, supported by proactive government policy and forward-looking regulatory initiatives. White & Case's Global Hydrogen Guide provides an overview of the impressive emergence of hydrogen policy and regulatory initiatives around the world, as well as a snapshot of emerging global hydrogen development activity.
As our Global Hydrogen Guide demonstrates, there is already a groundswell of activity in pursuit of a hydrogen economy by both the public and private sectors around the globe. What is striking is the significant interconnectivity of action and collaboration across regions – the hydrogen economy is a truly, and necessarily, global ambition.
Our Guide seeks to assist in enhancing a broad based understanding of the emerging global market for hydrogen – an ambition to 'see the whole board'.
