PANEL: HOW A CARBON TAX COULD BE THE MISSING LINK IN MAKING GREEN HYDROGEN ECONOMICALLY COMPETITIVE

Offtaker demand is key to developing a market for Green Hydrogen to survive without subsidies. Green Hydrogen’s current high cost makes it economically unviable compared to other sources of energy, however carbon taxes could help to create long term price parity and bridge that gap until Green hydrogen costs come down. In this session we will examine how carbon taxes have been implemented.

• Looking at the timelines required for carbon taxes to overcome the price gap between Grey and Green hydrogen,
and how they can be shortened
• Outlining planned and existing carbon taxation schemes, and their successes, and limitations
• How emissions trading could offer alternative income for developers looking to collocated hydrogen with their
projects
