Fuelling the transition
S1E8 | Using hydrogen to achieve net-zero with Johan Leuraers, Chief Consultant - Policy and Regulatory Affairs at Equinor
In order to achieve the EU’s target of 55% carbon reduction by 2030, hydrogen will have to make a key contribution to the energy mix. With many applications in industrial heat, mobility, power and chemical refineries, hydrogen can be used to decarbonise where electrification is not possible.
Equinor is a broad energy company with 21,000 employees developing oil, gas, wind and solar energy in more than 30 countries worldwide. Equinor have been at the forefront of promoting hydrogen projects in Europe and developing low-carbon hydrogen solutions.
In this episode Johan Leuraers, Chief Consultant - Policy and Regulatory Affairs at Equinor, and John Williams, Head of Hydrogen Expertise Cluster at AFRY Management Consulting, join us to discuss the main barriers to the uptake of hydrogen and the next steps to kick-start the hydrogen economy.
