Roland Berger study: Hydrogen production of 110 million tons per year expected for 2030

Study Download
In 2030, 12 percent of hydrogen will be produced "green", meaning climate-neutral Hydrogen production could increase to 240 Mt per year by 2040, the capacity of hydrogen electrolyzers required for this would be 1 TW In the 2030s, the expansion would therefore have to be as high each year as in the entire previous decade
Munich, December 2023: Hydrogen is an important buildin
