Reaching net zero emissions in Europe: Fast-tracking pathways to the hydrogen economy.
Brussels/Trondheim, 4 mai 2021 – A new study carried out by SINTEF and European partners shows that all hydrogen technologies will play an important role in Europe reaching its zero emissions goals by 2050. The study also shows that to reach these goals in a cost-effective way, it will be necessary to store, by 2050, 1000 times as much CO2 as the first phase of the Longship project plans for.
The European research project ELEGANCY presented the main findings on hydrogen and CCS on 18 June 2020.
As the only technology that can substantially reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, CCS is an essential component in essentially all IPCC scenarios that limit global warming to below 2°C.

To reach the net zero emission goal, Europe needs to introduce hydrogen as a low-carbon fuel for heating, cooling, transport and industrial processes. Converting Norwegian natural gas to low-carbon footprint hydrogen through reforming and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a necessary technology to reach this goal.
The HyPla project will establish a novel extractive metal production process where electricity and hydrogen replace carbon in metal ore reduction.
