Green hydrogen will be so much more expensive to produce than grey H2 from unabated fossil fuels, on average, that not even a carbon price of €200 ($237) per tonne — roughly four times higher than today — would make it cost-competitive this decade, according to a new report from German think-tank ?Agora Energiewende?.
Governments will therefore need to subsidise the required ramp-up of renewable hydrogen “for a considerable time” — at an annual cost of €10-24bn across the EU in the 2020s, says the study, Making renewable hydrogen cost-competitive, which was co-produced by analyst Guidehouse and legal firm Becker Büttner Held.
