Non-Technical Obstacles to Hydrogen Commercialisation

The Haeolus project was invited to deliver a presentation on non-technical obstacles in the commercialisation of hydrogen in the particular context of Arctic conditions at the Power-to-X workshop organised by IEA Hydrogen TP – task 38 in Aix-en-Provence, France.

We identify the major challenges in the supply chain of electrolyser components and development of the local hydrogen market, with special focus on maritime applications and supply to the Svalbard archipelago. Other challenges are logistic costs, demand of grid services, green certificates for produced hydrogen, and close collaboration with local authorities.
