Climate protection and energy security are moving more and more into the center of societal awareness and behavior. The ‘net-zero emissions’ targets by mid-century, which are ratified or under discussion by nearly 200 countries define a paradigm shift towards the limitation of the global temperature. Hydro-gen and its derivatives will be the backbone of a sustainable global energy trading system since it can store vast amounts of energy over long periods of time, can be transported in ships or pipelines and can be used in all energy consuming sectors as a replacement of fossil-based energy carriers. Furthermore, hydrogen is the basic molecule used in generating renewable synthetic fuels or chemicals. Linking the energy economy with the zero-emission mobility, vehicles powered by hydrogen in fuel cells or by synthetic fuels offer attractive filling times and driving ranges along with a known infrastructure and refueling system, familiar to that of fossil fuels.
