Argus Low Carbon Hydrogen Strategy Report

The Argus Low Carbon Hydrogen Strategy Report provides an in-depth analysis of the key sectors, countries and policies enabling hydrogen growth. 

Hydrogen has significant potential in multiple and varied end-use sectors, such as power generation, transport, steel, marine and aviation. Each of these are decarbonizing at different rates across the world. Some, such as steel, marine and aviation, are also hard-to-abate and these sectors are where hydrogen could play a key role. 

Understanding hydrogen’s drivers, evolution pathways and interactions across these (potentially competing) segments is key to maximizing the economic opportunity and meeting net-zero goals. 

The Argus Low Carbon Hydrogen Strategy Report is a detailed 500 slide PowerPoint PDF report plus accompanying Excel data file.

Hard-to-abate' sectors 

Steel production - Understand which countries have steel decarbonisation strategies, the companies exploring green steel initiatives, the technological readiness and status of projects, and economic competitiveness of green steel production.

Marine fuel supply chain - Understand the potential for various low carbon bunker fuels (hydrogen, ammonia, methanol, and biofuels) considering International Maritime Organisation (IMO) targets becoming increasingly more stringent. 

Aviation supply chain - Understand the demand drivers (i.e. policy, feedstock) for sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), market potential and which geographies are likely to be demand centres.


New demand sectors

Power generation and utilities - Understand the potential and pace at which hydrogen can be used to reduce emissions in power generating assets – either as ammonia co-fired in coal-based power plants or as hydrogen blended with natural gas in gas-based power plants. 

Transport - Understand hydrogen’s potential penetration across various vehicle segments (heavy goods vehicles, buses, taxis, and passenger cars) versus competing (battery and fossil-fuel) alternatives, in the context of available policy and subsidy support. 

Residential heating - Understand a country’s initiatives for blending hydrogen in the gas network (for residential and commercial use), blending rates, demand potential and timeline
