“A global ‘solar-to-hydrogen’ revolution is possible and could unlock significant benefits for society. All you need is the right business models to emerge for the solar industry,” writes Aurélie Beauvais, Policy Director at SolarPower Europe
The Minister was joined by the CEO of Hydrogen Denmark, Tejs Laustsen Jensen, and the two spoke about
the importance of further implementation of zero-emission transport as well as EU-collaboration regarding
the roll out of FCEV-fleets and the necessary refueling infrastructure.
Ministers and delegates from more than 30 nations, regions and organizations pledged Wednesday in Tokyo to introduce 10 million fuel cell vehicles, trucks, buses and other hydrogen-powered systems, as well as 10,000 hydrogen refueling stations, globally over the next 10 years.
"Hydrogen is not the silver bullet, but without hydrogen the energy transition will take much longer and will not be affordable. The key words for a successful energy transition are sector coupling and sectoral integration. The first stands for the coupling of the power, the heat and the gas sector. The second stands for the integration of renewables into different sectors such as mobility, residential heating and industry. In both cases, hydrogen is the most important enabler for the deep decarbonization of Europe next to electricity."

“We have been working on hydrogen continuously through all these years, in different projects and each of those projects built upon each other,” Dr. Guldner reaffirms. “We simply had a varying amount of external noise that we made about each of them.”
“Maybe to the outside it looked like we have been a bit up and down with hydrogen, but internally it has been very steady and deliberate in terms of how the projects have logically built upon each other.”
