Hydrogen has the potential for extensive use as a source of clean fuel and as an industrial feedstock—but it is expensive to produce, and current methods of production are very carbon intensive. Increased use of decarbonized “blue” and “green” hydrogen—hydrogen produced from natural gas with carbon capture technology and from electrolysis with renewable or nuclear energy, respectively—has the potential to greatly reduce emissions from industrial production processes and electricity generation. Recent research from RFF’s Alan Krupnick and Jay Bartlett identifies cost-effective opportunities for decarbonized hydrogen and examines short-term policy options to make blue and green hydrogen more competitive in the US industrial and power sectors.
