Reasons for Doing This Study

This is an update of a 2018 report on the global hydrogen economy. There have been some significant developments since the last report was published, such as the accelerated development of a network of hydrogen fueling stations in a number of developed markets.

The transition to a hydrogen economy will require large investments in capital equipment and durable goods at every stage of the hydrogen chain, from the production of hydrogen through its distribution and storage to its conversion to useful work or energy. These investments are economic challenges to the extent that they require the mobilization of sufficient financial resources, as well as business opportunities for providers of related goods and services.
