in recent times many countries are viewing hydrogen energy as an area essential for the implementation of national low-carbon development strategies
However, hydrogen is a secondary energy source, i.e. additional energy is required to produce it, which has an effect on its cost price.
- Most of the current foreign projects announced in this field are funded by state subsidies and reliefs, and there is no common global market of «energy» hydrogen today
1st of all, these areas include the development of innovative technologies for the utilization of methane-hydrogen fuel in the company's production activities, as well as the development of innovative technologies for the production of hydrogen from methane with zero СО2 emissions along with hydrogen transportation methods, inter alia, for the purpose of export.
The large-scale implementation of such technologies will create additional demand for natural gas as a feedstock for hydrogen production.
The Management Committee was tasked with providing for the activities aimed at pursuing priorities in natural gas-based hydrogen energy development.
