CRA discusses hydrogen's role in the path to net zero

In a recent Connected Energy Solutions article on hydrogen’s role in a decarbonized future, CRA Principal Enrique Glotzer explains why the use of hydrogen will be key in the energy transition and stresses the need for the industry to scale faster.

“Hydrogen is widely expected to have a significant potential role in the energy transition, especially in hard to abate carbon sectors such as heavy transport, industrial applications, and long-term storage for power. Hydrogen is one of the few options to decarbonise these challenging sectors, due to benefits such as storing large amounts of energy for long periods, use as a fuel feedstock, and combustion for heat.”
