Hydrogen energy will play an important role in achieving peak carbon neutrality


In October 2021, The State Council issued the "Carbon Peak 2030 Action Plan", which mentioned "renewable energy" and "hydrogen energy" for dozens of times. The Plan proposed to vigorously implement the replacement of renewable energy on the premise of ensuring energy security, and accelerate the construction of a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient energy system. In the field of hydrogen energy, we need to speed up r&d and demonstration application of hydrogen energy technology, and explore large-scale application in industry, transportation and construction.




The increasing number and grade of hydrogen energy projects in the Science and Technology Awards is not only an upgrade of hydrogen technology and application from qualitative change to quantitative change, but also an indispensable proof of hydrogen energy's role in renewable energy and carbon neutrality.


In the near future, we are confident that we will witness the moment when hydrogen energy will shine.
