Analysis of National hydrogen strategies – NAHyS

As World Government leaders are setting out recovery plans and strategies to push the economy beyond the pandemic crisis, energy transition is gaining momentum. Among the new fuels and technologies that governments want to support, hydrogen is receiving unprecedented interest and investments. In early 2021, 25 countries published specific roadmaps and national hydrogen strategies and others are working on them. The research project aims to analyse all these strategies to understand the drivers, priorities and policies that each country intends to adopt to support hydrogen. The project aims at determining the internal coherence of each document and how each strategy relates to the other in terms of ambition, objectives, costs and policies and how the strategies relate to global trends in the hydrogen economy. The project combines quantitative and qualitative research tools.

Main Results and Outputs
  • Creation of a Tag-based cataloguing system for documents divided into two macro-groups: one referring to the specific characteristics of the document and one referring to the content of the document itself;
  • Collection and application of the cataloguing system to specific documentation on hydrogen, including national and international strategies and roadmaps through the use of a Reference Manager software (Mendeley);
  • Building of a dataset specifically created through the use of categorical and qualitative variables aimed at the complete representation of the content of strategies and roadmaps (national policies, targets, measures taken at national and international level);
  • Analysis of the content of strategies and roadmaps in order to identify common and contrasting trends, ambitions, policies, objectives and degree of incisiveness and specificity;
  • Comparison of the analysis carried out with the global situation of the hydrogen market and its expansion trends, expected topology and developed technologies.
