From 80 to 300 in 30 years
Clean energy in large quantities
The practical use of hydrogen has been tried and tested for many years - from rocket propulsion to hydrogen-fueled fuel cells in trains, buses and passenger cars. However, by far the largest consumption of hydrogen today is still found as feedstock for the chemical and petrochemical industries. Worldwide, approximately 80 Mt of hydrogen was used in 2019. Due to its future use as a clean energy carrier for the energy transition, hydrogen consumption is forecast to reach 300 Mt per year by 2050.
Hydrogen is the simplest chemical element with a high availability
