Hydrogen plays a core role in global decarbonisation strategies. But its deployment is non-standard, being industry, nation and company specific. The Argus Hydrogen and Future Fuels service (AHFF) helps users navigate carbon-intensity reduction more efficiently.

Hype, optimism and wildly divergent data have surrounded the hydrogen sector for years. This has left companies describing difficulties from different assumptions held by delivery, management and board members. AHFF delivers a unified source of high-quality news on policy, technology and industry, plus analysis, production costs and databases, putting transparent, precise data in all decision-maker's hands.

Customers that benefit

Insight for companies in:
  • Decarbonising ‘hard-to-abate’ sectors

    Gain insight into the cost of decarbonising existing refining, fertiliser production or hydrogenation operations.

  • Industrial heat

    Hydrogen can substitute existing fossil-fuel sources for process heat used in the preparation or treatment of materials, whether minerals, metals, glass or food preparation. Understand the available options and costs.

  • Power generation

    Coal and gas-fired power plants can substitute decarbonised ammonia for coal or decarbonised hydrogen with natural gas. Analyse the cost gaps, relative to unabated feedstocks.

  • Oil and gas

    Low-carbon teams are assessing use opportunities to substitute unabated ‘grey’ hydrogen in existing operations, as well as becoming outright producers of decarbonised H₂. Teams focusing on different carbon-intensity H₂ in different jurisdictions will benefit from data customised to their specific needs.

  • Financial markets

    A clear, comprehensive view on a sector with a forecast total addressable market of as much as $250bn by 2030. Evolving costs, manufacturing and production capacity, through to corporate activity.
  • Hydrogen technology companies

    Get expert coverage and insight across the chain, from abated fossil-derived hydrogen, through renewable-fed electrolysers.

  • Diesel substituting industries

    Whether construction firms (distributed power), data centres (back-up power), or mining firms decarbonising logistics chains, this service provides critical decision-making information.

  • Marine fuels markets

    As firms look beyond LNG for decarbonising fuel supply, this service provides information on hydrogen, ammonia and eMethanol, within the context of energy volume and efficiency.

  • H₂ and derivative product producers

    Hydrogen producers and users of technologies like electrolysers and CCUS require information to understand how demand for hydrogen changes if the process of producing it has a larger carbon footprint. This service provides crucial data for validating production costs vs peers or alternative production routes. The same data can be used as the basis for standardised offtake agreements with customers.

  • EPCM service providers

    Real-time information on the ‘hot’ sectors and geographies leaning into hydrogen, for agile pinpointing of sales and marketing efforts.
