- Can hydrogen be economically competitive with other low-carbon energy options given the inefficient conversions hydrogen undergoes during production and for transportation?
- Can a higher carbon price alone make hydrogen a competitive low-carbon energy option? Are other price support mechanisms are needed (feed-in tariffs, premium, contract for difference, etc.)?
- At this stage of hydrogen's market development, what elements of the regulation are the most essential to support the take-off of hydrogen?
- What other industry or commodity is the market for hydrogen most likely to mirror? (LNG, LPG, ethylene? or iron ore)?
- What makes a hydrogen supply project "investable" other than Return on Investment?
- backed by long-term demand contracts?
- advantageous production costs?
- low cost of capital through subsidies/incentives?
- What questions/demands are financiers asking/making that the hydrogen industry has yet to find a sufficient answer to?
- Beyond Hydrogen Hubs connected via pipelines, what technology or mechanism is most likely to link different regional markets into one global commoditized market? (as LNG has for natural gas)
- Liquified hydrogen
- H2 to ammonia (and back to H2?)
- H2 to methanol (and back to H2?)
- Other liquid organic hydrogen carriers?
