Low carbon hydrogen (LCH) refers to hydrogen gas produced using methods that minimize greenhouse gas emissions throughout its entire lifecycle. LCH is typically generated through processes that utilize renewable energy sources (such as electrolysis powered by solar or wind energy) or by capturing and storing the carbon emissions generated during hydrogen production from fossil fuels.
Carbon Limits partnered with several independent modelers and Deloitte France to conduct this project for Russia. The modelling teams assessed the technical and economic potential of LCH, and Carbon Limits evaluated the results for developing a roadmap for LCH development in the country. The final report documented the LCH production pathways through literature review, understand the role of hydrogen (H2) in the global clean energy transition, analyze existing H2 roadmaps and investments worldwide, assess the transition from low carbon to zero carbon H2, and ultimately create a roadmap to achieve the modeled results in Russia.
