Our member Paul Martin appeared as a guest on the Redefining Energy Podcast, episode 19: Hydrogen: broken promises.
See below for a description of the talk, and click the link above to listen to the interview.
Gerard and Laurent invite Paul Martin to review the various development routes for Hydrogen, the forever “fuel of tomorrow”. Behind the smoke and mirrors of the current H2 PR blitz, are powerful incumbent industries looking for new markets. Unfortunately the laws of thermodynamics are not playing in favor of Hydrogen. The debate explores how Hydrogen is produced, and what are its best uses. Can “Green” Hydrogen ever compete with “Blue” Hydrogen? Is there any possible scaling of Electrolysers to reduce their price? As for its uses, Hydrogen for Ammonia, for Transportation and others are much trumpeted options. But can Hydrogen be cheaply moved?
And what should governments do? Subsidise or Tax? During an in-depth episode, we debunk myths and start providing sensible answers from an environmental and economic standpoint.
