Maritime transport and aviation accounted for just over 900 million tons of carbon dioxide a year in 2019 each, together making up about 5% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Major transportation firms are increasingly researching the use of hydrogen as the best solution to decarbonise long-distance transport.
- Transport sector interest in hydrogen implies solid demand for the fuel, boosting research and development into hydrogen technologies.
- The adoption of hydrogen decarbonisation pathways will boost demand for low carbon electricity, benefitting the renewable energy sector.
- Mass hydrogen demand may renew interest in nuclear power for low-carbon power generation, and 'blue' hydrogen output from natural gas.
