Hydrogen Intelligence Service

Hydrogen research with a global view

About the service

Despite the current noise and interest surrounding the clean hydrogen market, there remains a disconnect between action on the ground now and where hydrogen could be by 2025 or even 2030.

But with promising targets and policy, combined with increasing investment and a steady but continued growth into new sectors, there is undeniable potential for clean hydrogen despite the uncertainty surrounding exactly how we’ll get there.

HYbase was developed by LCP Delta’s hydrogen team to help you to track the latest updates for green hydrogen projects across Europe in a centralised, easy-to-use platform.

At LCP Delta, our Hydrogen Intelligence Service cuts through the hype to provide market clarity and direction as we lean into the energy transition.

Clean hydrogen is an emerging pillar of the global new energy sector.

A true cross-sector energy vector, it will affect the whole energy value chain – causing disruption and creating a broad spread of new opportunities as the energy transition continues to unfold. These opportunities will be interwoven with the wider transition in the electricity, heating, mobility and industrial sectors.

Understanding and navigating these threats and opportunities will be critical for a wide range of companies throughout the value chain – from clean hydrogen production, through its storage and distribution and especially its end-use applications.

Fundamentally, there are big questions about the nature of a potentially huge prize – and who will claim that prize.

Service Summary

LCP Delta - your partner in clean hydrogen insight

Through in-depth research, data analysis, expert market insight and a finger on the pulse of key players and innovators in the clean hydrogen space, Delta-EE’s hydrogen research service explores key questions and uncertainties, including:

  • Who is doing what in clean hydrogen – why, where, how and with whom?
  • Who is leading in developing and deploying clean hydrogen and end-use applications, and how is this evolving?
  • What sectors and end-use applications will drive demand for clean hydrogen and how will these applications develop?
  • Where is the value in clean hydrogen now and in the future and how can you assess the players in this value chain?
  • Where are clean hydrogen projects and value chains most advanced? Why?
  • What can be learned so far about hydrogen buses and will the market take off?
  • Is there value in the hydrogen refuelling station supply chain? If so, where?
  • What is the role for electrolysis in electricity system flexibility?
  • Oil and gas giants versus utilities in the hydrogen sector: should they be in competition or collaboration?

Whether you’re working within an electricity network and want to understand the role that hydrogen and electrolysers can play in balancing the grid, or a strategic analyst looking for deep sector insight and knowledge to understand how the value chain is developing, we will work with you to find the answers.

At the forefront of clean hydrogen research

Stay up-to-date with the latest developments

We collate global and regional information into one easy-to-use data source, allowing you to say up-to-speed with hydrogen developments and trends with ease. This includes the countries that are moving fastest and in what areas, and which players are expanding into clean hydrogen.

HYbase

HYbase tracks over 100 distinct data points on clean hydrogen projects, such as country of origin, companies involved, sector of application, investment and more. The database is accessed through an intuitive series of dashboards corresponding to our topic reports, ensuring a user-friendly interface and quick access to the right information.

Insights Include:

  • Tracking production of low carbon hydrogen with a focus on green (water electrolysis) and blue hydrogen (fossil fuels and CCS)
  • Clean hydrogen distribution whether via blended or pure hydrogen networks, or via haulage or shipping
  • Key end-use applications across mobility, industry, heat and power sectors
  • Linkages with the wider energy transition including interaction of electrolysers with the electricity system.

Expert Opinion

Green vs. blue hydrogen: independent & impartial insight

The argument of what “colours” of hydrogen should be used to enable the energy transition is a divisive subject among many clean hydrogen experts.

At LCP Delta the service we provide is impartial, providing you with unbiased information from which to draw your own conclusions about the areas of research that are pertinent to your organisation.

While all the colours of the hydrogen are covered by the service, our focus areas are on green and blue hydrogen:

Generated by an electrolyser that uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, green hydrogen is where we’ve seen the greatest technological advancements over the last 5 years: it’s becoming bigger, cheaper and more efficient.

When you couple this with the increase in quantity of renewable electricity in grids across Europe, the economics of producing green hydrogen is continually improving, making clean hydrogen cost-effective in an increasing number of sectors. However, even in the best conditions, it isn’t yet cost-competitive compared to fossil fuel alternatives.
