We need to move away from fossil fuels, and green hydrogen is key to making that happen. The core of our business is using green hydrogen based on renewable energy to replace fossil fuels across a range of sectors. This includes many heavy industries where a part of the production process often requires temperatures far higher than what electricity can produce, as well as the maritime sector and long-distance transport. Together, these three sectors make up almost 30% of global CO2 emissions and we have the opportunity to change that by getting them to switch to green hydrogen. We will develop, operate and own green hydrogen facilities, and provide our industry and energy expertise to customers to provide the solutions they need to make the fuel switch and transition to renewable energy.Read more about Hydrogen
