Not all regions have comprehensive policy frameworks in place to implement hydrogen ambitions. While some are galvanising policy, strategy and technologies, others are far less mature. Figure 1 shows the renewable and low-carbon production goals of ten regions by 2030.
The uptake of hydrogen will differ significantly by region and will be heavily influenced by policy packages that focus on the hydrogen value chain from production to usage. Europe is leading the race to embrace hydrogen and is set to take 11% of the energy mix by 2050, followed by OECD Pacific (8%) and North America (7%) where strategies, targets, and funding is pushing the supply-side.
