수소의 기회 포착

UN에 따르면 기후 변화는 우리 세대의 가장 중요한 과제이며 NASA는 이를 오늘날 우리가 직면한 가장 복잡한 문제 중 하나로 간주합니다.

기후 변화는 이 세대의 결정적인 과제라고 합니다. 연합 국가, 그리고 오늘날 우리가 직면한 가장 복잡한 문제 중 하나는 나사. 전통적인 에너지 생산 및 소비 패턴과 불가분의 관계가 있으므로 에너지 부문이 기후 논쟁의 중심에 있다는 것은 말할 필요도 없습니다. 에너지 부문은 현대인의 삶을 지탱하고 국가를 번영으로 이끄는 중요한 원천이지만, 세계 온실가스 배출의 가장 큰 원인이기도 합니다. 국제에너지기구. 그래서, 그 영향으로 평소와 같이 사업 글로벌 범위와 전례 없는 위험을 안고 있는 지금이야말로 장기적인 구조적 변화를 구현하고 글로벌 에너지 전환에 힘을 실어주는 데 필요한 대규모 투자를 해제할 수 있는 방법에 대해 집단적으로 재고해야 할 때라는 것이 분명합니다.

In the transition to a sustainable energy future, there is now international consensus that hydrogen will play a key role. Hydrogen has entered mainstream discussions in major fora globally. This year’s 일본 G20 정상회의는 수소에 강한 초점을 맞췄다. It was here that a new International Energy Agency 보고서, 수소의 미래,  was launched, concluding that the time is right to tap into hydrogen’s potential. In addition, recent analyses by 블룸버그 신에너지 금융  그리고 록키 마운틴 연구소  predict that the cost of producing hydrogen gas with renewables is likely to drop dramatically in the coming decades, contributing to the growth of the hydrogen market and making the technology even more accessible. Hydrogen has enormous potential to be one of the game changers we need in the energy sector – the technology to harness cleaner power through this abundant element is here.

Hydrogen will need to complement other solutions in the energy mix, including renewables, other clean fuels and electrification – but it is incredibly versatile, able to be used as a fuel for power or in industry, and able to help us decarbonise major sectors such as transport, steel, aviation and building heat. To put this into context, 2050년까지, hydrogen could meet 18% of the world’s final energy demands, preventing 6 Gt of CO2 emissions compared to today’s technologies. Most importantly, hydrogen generates zero emissions at the point of use, allowing for long-term energy storage, and able to be produced from renewable electricity or with low emissions profiles from hydrocarbons when coupled with carbon capture and storage (CCS).

Industry has been developing innovative hydrogen solutions for decades and is now poised to deliver: solutions are ready to deploy at scale. Where in the past only a limited number of pioneering states and industry players have stood somewhat alone, governments all over the world are now recognising hydrogen as critical to reaching their energy and climate targets and are rolling out long-term hydrogen strategies to accelerate its deployment. From Germany to Australia to Korea, in 2019 there are 50개 이상 strategies and targets now set in place to support hydrogen development.

Global cooperation is already producing large-scale hydrogen projects, and inspiring further action and collaboration; yet to realise the hydrogen economy which will lay the foundations for a new energy system, we need smart investments and innovative financing to scale up and mass deploy hydrogen technologies. Not only is there a compelling environmental case for action, but the economic case is also robust. The recent 수소 위원회 연구 – Hydrogen Scaling Up shows that a $2.5 trillion market is waiting to be unlocked by 2050 once hydrogen is deployed at scale.

No one country or company alone has the financing, technology or policies to start a global energy revolution; but there is a clear, urgent need to unlock the large-scale investment required to empower the global energy transition now. We simply need to have the vision and foresight to seize the opportunities for a clean, secure and affordable energy future.
