The nuclear sector wants to cash in on the emerging demand for low-carbon energy by powering hydrogen electrolysis, but not everyone is convinced the industry’s arguments stack up
A hydrogen economy will need vast amounts of low-carbon electricity to power electrolysis, possibly offering nuclear power renewed opportunities in a decarbonised world ...

Ørsted’s transformation from a fossil-intensive European utility to a leading global renewable energy company has benefited the company’s bottom line as well as the climate, writes Jakob Askou Bøss, Head of Strategy and Communication
Natural gas has not yet reached its peak in the US, but the summit is in view
Using the electricity from renewables and converting it to another energy carrier is nothing new. While many in the energy industry focus on green hydrogen, other researchers are examining the possibility of storing that power as molten salt to help high-temperature processes to decarbonise
How to integrate renewables into an energy system while keeping lights on
The European Union is faced with making a number of key decisions imposed by the climate emergency and the need for drastic CO2 reduction. More than ever, the fight against climate change also needs to contribute to the economic recovery by developing the EU industry and technologies of the future. Low-carbon hydrogen meets both ambitions, says Christelle Rouillé, from EDF subsidiary Hynamics
Hydrogen brings a lot to the table for the EU's energy transition. But to be truly beneficial, we need to design its contribution with a global perspective, argues Thomas Boermans, head of innovation trends and strategy at E.ON.
Japan is one of more than 130 nations pledging to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. However, its path may be more complicated than anticipated given Japan’s reliance on both fossil fuels following public scepticism over nuclear power
As this year’s European Gas Regulatory Forum, also known as the Madrid Forum, gets underway in Spain, Antoine Simon from Friends of the Earth Europe calls for the European Commission to think very carefully about what role gas can really play given the climate emergency the world is facing
Welcoming the recently agreed EU 2030 climate and energy targets, Kristian Ruby, Secretary General of Eurelectric argues for a regulatory framework able to smoothly integrate greater amounts of renewables and electrification
Europe can lead the world on emission-free hydrogen, but it needs to solve the dilemma that industry offers the greatest potential demand, while the profit margins are in transport. Bart Biebuyck from the European Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking argues the value of emission-free hydrogen must be judged by more than its price tag versus fossil fuels
