Grace is an energy analyst at Regen and leads their work on the opportunities for hydrogen as part of a net zero future. Her work has involved carrying out analysis on the uptake of low carbon hydrogen electrolysers at a distribution level for future net zero scenarios and undertaking hydrogen opportunity assessments for local authorities. She has also written some thought leadership pieces for Regen on hydrogen activity in the UK and the hydrogen value chain. Grace has been with Regen for almost a year and has been involved with Regen’s policy and advisory work. Prior to joining Regen, Grace completed her master’s degree in Mathematics and Climate Science from the University of Exeter.

Panel Discussion

Aside from the technology needed to produce hydrogen, location of production is of equal importance to both cost effectiveness and use of land. Governments and developers will need to decide whether to meet demand and the lowest cost hydrogen is best produced on site next to renewables, or whether energy is transported from areas with high volume low-cost renewable energy to centralised hydrogen plants.

• Should developers put their efforts into several big projects that can meet capacities or a mix of smaller localised and regional projects?
• Examining the cost basis for localised projects vs. importing
• How issues of space to deploy projects will affect cost, especially in the European context with less space available
• Ensuring that green hydrogen remains green after transportation - how can foreign production be tracked to ensure renewables are used?
