The Multiple Correspondence Map

This is the result of a multiple correspondence analysis of the hydrogen strategies of the 31 countries listed above.

From which the following conclusions can be drawn:

  • Europe is primarily focused on importing hydrogen from low-carbon sources to reduce emissions in the transport sector.
  • Latin America and Africa share a common focus on exporting hydrogen produced exclusively from renewable sources, aiming to enhance their economic prosperity.
  • North America stands out as distinct, emphasizing energy independence and utilizing hydrogen for power generation.

Europe

This is the result a multiple correspondence analysis of the hydrogen strategies of Europe

Given the abundance of national hydrogen strategies, a closer look was taken on the similarities within Europe.  In this regard, a separate Multiple Correspondence Map was plotted, from which the following conclusions can be drawn:

  • A regional hydrogen supply structure with low carbon hydrogen as its source is a foundation connecting various countries within Europe.
  • Ukraine is focussing its hydrogen strategy on an export-oriented supply structure with the power sector as its main field of hydrogen application.
  • Austria, Germany and Netherlands are linked together by their focus on importing hydrogen utilized primarily in the industrial sector.

Summary

This are the key takeways of the Analysis.

  • Geographic regions have distinctly different priorities regarding their hydrogen approach.

  • The most prevalent driving forces for countries considering hydrogen economies are being leaders and economic prosperity.

  • Latin America, Oceania and Africa focus the most on export, while Europe focuses on import.

  • Decarbonization efforts are strongly targeting the industrial sector.

  • The priority for hydrogen utilization in the industrial sector is on chemical feedstocks.
