Clean hydrogen future has already begun and offshore wind will play a part. Renewable electricity from wind and solar can play a major role producing green hydrogen, and steps are already being taken to use offshore wind Hydrogen Envoy for the Ministry of Economic Affairs & Climate Policy, the Netherlands, Noé van Hulst says there is growing international consensus that clean hydrogen will play a key role in the world’s transition to a sustainable energy future, including ‘green hydrogen’ from renewable sources such as wind energy. He also anticipates a growing role for offshore wind in producing green hydrogen. “Researchers have found that clean hydrogen still costs too much to enable it to be widely deployed. Prices may not come down sufficiently until the 2030s, according to some estimates. But despite the uncertainty surrounding the future of clean hydrogen, there are promising signs that it could become more affordable sooner than expected,” says Mr van Hulst.
