Low-Carbon Hydrogen in the EBRD Region

EBRD Policy Academy

Low-Carbon Hydrogen in the EBRD Region

About the Module

Low-carbon hydrogen (and its derivatives) will be key solutions on the way to net zero emissions, especially for “hard-to-decarbonise” sectors. Although the technology is fast reaching maturity, the hydrogen market is still at its infancy. Matching demand and supply, including via international trade, will be important in order to quickly “ramp-up” the use of renewable hydrogen.

The EBRD Region can produce low-carbon hydrogen to support local decarbonisation but also can provide cost-competitive renewable-based fuels to high-demand regions like the European Union.

Since 2021 the EBRD has been involved in the development of renewable hydrogen in our Countries of Operations through technical assistance work, policy dialogue, and project financing.

This EBRD Policy Academy unit will share some of the findings of this work, and will discuss the potential of, and barriers to, the emergence of a renewable hydrogen economy.
