Utilitydive.com quotes Toronto lawyer Janet Howard in an article about if Hydrogen will experience a breakthrough in 2021.
This is not the first time the world has seen industry hype for hydrogen. But this time, the need for hydrogen is no longer theoretical, according to Janet Howard, a partner at Canadian law firm Fasken. Achieving economy-wide decarbonization will require carbon-free solutions in sectors where electrification alone seems unlikely to fit the bill. The question, many now believe, is not whether the world will transition to a grid powered by a combination of renewable energy and hydrogen-based fuels. The question is how soon will the needed hydrogen become available – and how should we best use scarce supplies in the interim.
