The road to greener hydrogen

The road to greener hydrogen
Whether hydrogen fuel holds the key to delivering widespread renewable power remains under heavy debate. What cannot be argued is the shear investment that backers are putting into the energy source - as much as €470bn by 2050. When sceptics protest hydrogen’s potential, as both an effective and eco-friendly fuel source, it’s important that they see the bigger picture. Mats W. Lundberg, Head of Sustainability at Sandvik, examines the hydrogen roadmap.
