China’s hydrogen export

Hydrogen plays an increasingly important role in China’s energy landscape as it seeks to diversify its energy sources, reduce its reliance on fossil fuels, and meet its climate goals.

China has released its first-ever long-term plan for hydrogen, covering the period of 2021-2035, as it seeks to develop a domestic hydrogen industry and decarbonize its economy. China is the world’s largest hydrogen producer, but most of its production is emissions-intensive, with around two-thirds generated from coal. The country aims to produce at least 5% of its energy from low-emission hydrogen by 2030.

The role of Hydrogen in the energy transition

Hydrogen is a chemical element with the symbol H and atomic number 1. It is the lightest and most abundant element in the universe, and it can be found in a variety of forms, including gas, liquid, or solid.
In the context of the energy transition, hydrogen is of particular interest as a potential low-carbon energy carrier. When hydrogen is burned, it produces only water vapor, making it a clean-burning fuel. Additionally, hydrogen can be produced from a variety of sources, including natural gas, biomass, and water through a process called electrolysis, which uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.
