What we are talking about is ultimately about preserving the biosphere of the Earth. We have all evolved over the last 150 years, and especially the last 70 years, based on the burning of fossil fuels. Population growth required more and more energy and more food. So today we are where we are. It is crucial to accelerate the energy transition to renewable energy sources and to carry out comprehensive decarbonization of transport and production of all types of goods. Renewable energy sources coupled with hydrogen can significantly accelerate this transition and thus contribute to avoiding catastrophic scenarios.
Due to the increase in demand, there is an opportunity for the Republic of Croatia the produce and use hydrogen technology components.
When we talk about the potential role of hydrogen in reviving our economy then we mean the production and use of hydrogen technology components in that economy and for possible exports. Equipment exports could be a significant segment due to the increase in demand in the EU, generated by the adopted EU hydrogen strategy. The whole situation should be considered especially carefully in light of Chinese state subsidies for the development of their domestic hydrogen technology. Significant EU companies for the production of hydrogen fuel cell stacks already have agreements with China.
