The future role of hydrogen in the Netherlands. A meta-analysis based no a review of recent scenario studies
This report explores the future role of hydrogen as energy carrier and feedstock in a low-carbon energy system, focusing on the Netherlands. In particular, it provides a review of the projected range in hydrogen use across various sectoral applications based on studies reported in the recent literature (2014-2019).
In addition to studies focusing on the Netherlands only, for comparative reasons we have also reviewed other studies covering other EU countries, the EU as a whole or even the global energy system. This meta-analysis provides insight in the similarities and differences in assumptions and outcomes of the studies reviewed with regard to the future role of hydrogen in a low-carbon energy system.
