Cleanly produced hydrogen has been identified as one significant opportunity for curbing climate change. It may also be highly suited to many sectors of industry that would otherwise be difficult to clean.
The electricity grid, a potential hydrogen network, and energy storage possibilities will play a significant role in creating Finland’s hydrogen economy. The aim is to study the possible future development pathways for the production and consumption of hydrogen in Finland, as well as the requirements that these will place on electricity and gas transmission system operators. The collaboration involved investigating the impact on the energy transmission system as a whole if Finland had a hydrogen network operating nationally and providing opportunities for exporting hydrogen.
