Investors & the Hydrogen Economy

On 18 September 2017, the Hydrogen Council hosted its inaugural?Investor Day – Hydrogen: ready to scale. As an affiliate event of New York Climate Week, the ground breaking event?boasted more than 160?investors, industry experts and policy stakeholders.

Panels covered how hydrogen empowers the?energy transition; why these technologies are now considered?market-ready; discussed existing?business cases?and?investment opportunities, as well as the strategies and tools required for?scale deployment.

Presentations from Hydrogen Council members, as well as industry guests and stakeholders introduced various elements of the hydrogen market, deployment needs, commercial development and more.

All presentations can be viewed and downloaded here.

Key conclusions from the event:
  • Major technology progress has been achieved in the last 10 years with?costs reduced by a factor of 20?over the period.
  • Commercial products are now being marketed across sectors and along the?full hydrogen value chain, including hydrogen production (e.g. electrolyzers), hydrogen stations, forklifts, cars, buses, trains, heating & power systems etc.
  • Manufacturing capacities across the world are growing, which will yield?additional cost decrease in coming years. New plants have been announced in the US, Canada, Germany, Japan, Korea, China etc.
  • These developments are driven by a?dense ecosystem?of large OEM’s, specialized SME’s and innovative start-ups.
  • Some markets are?already fully activated, leveraging cost-competitive products such as material handling, captive fleets of vehicles (taxis, buses…) etc.
  • Exponential growth is underway in all addressed markets,?supported by clear political backing.
  • There are no technical bottlenecks to reach scale, but there is a need to?anticipate investments.?This includes ramping up the total number of hydrogen stations worldwide from 300 to 3,000 in the next 5-7 years. Investments will multiply by 10 over the period.
  • Investments are required along full value chain, from product development, manufacturing lines to hydrogen infrastructure?Investors are encouraged to get in early.

Hydrogen is shaping to be a good investment option because large scale deployment has already begun to take shape and it is supported by both public and private players.

There has been a major regulatory and industry-wide push to scale and further deploy hydrogen. Many countries around the world are already laying the groundwork to foster joint investments and partnerships on a large scale.
