A Multi-talen for the energy transition
For a climate-neutral future, fossil raw materials such as coal, natural gas and crude oil will have to be replaced by renewable alternatives. Renewable hydrogen will play a decisive role in the energy transition, as it can be produced from renewable energies in a carbon-neutral manner. Hydrogen is also versatile – it can be used as a storage medium for renewable energy, as an industrial raw material e.g. in green steel production or in the chemical industry, as well as for synthetic fuels. Due to this broad application base, hydrogen can play a role in many sectors, such as in the energy system, in the transport sector or in industry. Technological progress will also lead to new, innovative applications for hydrogen in the future. For some sectors and applications, direct electrification makes more sense than the use of climate-neutral hydrogen, as it will initially only be available in small quantities and at high prices.
