Hydrogen

Hydrogen will play a key role in the decarbonisation of global energy demand but there are complex challenges in the way of realising this potential. Our experts help the industry navigate this through strategy, analysis, stakeholder engagement and strategic partnerships.

 

Globally, governments and companies have set an ambitious target for low carbon hydrogen but now they are hoping to convert these targets into investment and deployment. So far however, progress has not kept pace with ambition as certain barriers have hampered the realisation of projects and investment.

These challenges include:

  • Uncertainty around regulation, pricing, economics, and business models preventing investment decisions.
  • Truly innovative companies and technologies being lost amongst the jostling and noise of a developing and uncertain market.
  • A need for strategic partnerships to ensure the necessary infrastructure, markets and expertise are developed to enable value chains, hubs, and off-takers.
  • Stronger and clearer regulation combined with greater funding are needed to bridge the gap whilst hydrogen is in its development phase.
  • A gap in knowledge, skills and networks are preventing business making decisions with confidence.

However, by leveraging its best-in-class expertise, network, and toolkit within hydrogen, Gemserv can help clients, private or public, overcome these challenges and realise their ambitions. Gemserv Hydrogen Solutions is a suite of solutions that address these key challenges.
