Hydrogen and synthetic energy carriers: new value chains and the future of global energy trade — Veronika Grimm

03 Aug 2021


Veronika Grimm (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg)


Hydrogen and synthetic energy carriers will play a central role in an increasingly climate-friendly economy. The wide range of technologies and components required for hydrogen use holds the opportunity for Germany and Europe to leverage substantial value creation potential through the production of key components for the hydrogen economy as well as through the development of new value chains. On the other hand, the switch to climate-friendly energy production shifts international locational advantages. This potentially shifts value chains, but also affects global energy trade. In my presentation, I will shed light on these developments building on a series of working papers (&work in progress) that address the future role of hydrogen from different perspectives.
