Today, hydrogen is a very local business. About 85% of hydrogen gas is produced and consumed on-site within a facility rather than bought and sold on the wider market. Even where hydrogen is sold, it is usually not transported across large distances because of the logistical difficulties and costs. Green hydrogen will be most economically produced in locations that have an optimal combination of abundant renewable resources, available land, access to water and the ability to transport and export energy to large demand centers.

This lecture is part of the Geopolitics of Hydrogen course, which provides a comprehensive understanding of the global dynamics related to hydrogen. Click here for more information and to enroll for this course.
