As the world races to achieve net zero, there’s a clear and pressing need to find and use low carbon hydrogen technology.
Hydrogen's potential to provide a clean and abundant source of energy is driving many governments and players in the energy sector to invest heavily in new projects and position themselves as leaders in the hydrogen market.
Corporate demand and supply are increasing rapidly. To date, more than 40 countries have set out their hydrogen roadmaps and strategies. Over 1,000 hydrogen projects have been announced globally, which represents $320 billion investments through 2030.
Within this evolving market, companies must steer through an evolving legislative, contractual and commercial landscape. Navigating the complex legal, commercial, and regulatory risks, and seizing the opportunities they present is vital to ensuring success.
