While electricity is traded on a European level and there is even a global market for gas and oil, there is currently no market for hydrogen and other synthetic fuels (SynFuels). In the event of a burgeoning hydrogen economy, a concept for the design of such a market must be developed. Incentive systems can help hydrogen contribute to climate goals by creating sustainable business models. These incentive systems must be evaluated in the context of future developments and barriers to business models identified. The main task here is to create a competitive market for CO2-neutral green hydrogen. The prerequisite for this is an appropriate regulatory framework.
Specifically, we look at the following questions:
- What might the global hydrogen market of the future look like?
- What is the cost of hydrogen now and in the future?
- What mechanisms can make green hydrogen competitive?
- What regulatory tools are available to shape the market ramp-up?
