    Hydrogen: calls for law and "solid agreement" for the fuel of the future

    October 4, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The PlataformaH2 Argentina called for the need to generate a regulatory framework that promotes long-term investments in hydrogen and places the country on the world map of the production of this type of low-emission energy, baptized the fuel of the future.

      The cluster, which brings together a dozen business and academic entities in favor of H2, remarked that the country is presented as one of the most attractive for hydrogen production, but that it is essential a regulation that includes a series of definitions that allow clarity to some concepts used in the development of its articles. " Particularly important is the definition of hydrogen of renewable origin, differentiated from hydrogen obtained by other methods that will also be included in the standard if it contributes to reducing emissions," they stressed.

      According to the experts at the last working meeting, hydrogen is an unlimited source of energy that can be obtained in different ways, some more sustainable than others. One way to obtain hydrogen is through the electrolysis process, by which hydrogen is separated from oxygen, which requires large amounts of electricity. When that electricity comes from renewable sources, such as wind or solar, the resulting hydrogen is considered "green hydrogen".


      In this context, they said it is key to consider this fuel of renewable origin for the process of decarbonization and energy transition. The H2 Platform seeks to encourage greater commitment, knowledge and vocation for the public and private sector to generate the conditions for the necessary investments, infrastructure, production and commercialization of hydrogen.

      The roadmap for hydrogen development in Argentina also calls for clearly defining an application authority that will be in charge of formulating, monitoring and implementing a national hydrogen development program containing well-established objectives, goals, deadlines and priorities and a time horizon up to 2030.

      "This decade is crucial for the establishment of a State policy with broad consensus from all sectors. This process has a decisive initial stage between now and 2030, so it is essential to focus the task of the application authority in the implementation of what we call a National Hydrogen Strategy 2030," they said.

      According to Ámbito, when analyzing the possibilities of regulation, other successful promotion regimes were recalled, such as the GasAr Plan. " A regime is proposed that has elements of promotion, fiscal stability and an active participation of the State promoting strategic projects and activities in collaboration with the private sector", they said, and stressed that "the volume of investments and their long maturity period require a regulation of these characteristics".

      The H2 Platform advocated reaching a "solid agreement" to sustain an activity that, during the present decade, will have to gain scale and competitiveness, with the purpose of the country becoming part of the global hydrogen market.

      "This will allow the different actors involved to contribute with different views to boost what will be the fuel of the future. A virtuous regulatory framework will allow Argentina to actively participate in this new market and compete with other countries that have already entered this same race," they concluded.
