Directional certainty for the climate turnaround: Borderstep launches new project

Hydrogen as a panacea?

Is hydrogen really the panacea in the climate crisis? Together with the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW), Borderstep is analyzing in a new project the areas in which the use of hydrogen appears to make sense for achieving climate goals.

Hydrogen – panacea or hype?

The starting point for the project is the observation that there is currently a massive “overbooking” of green hydrogen by a large number of sectors. This potentially leads to climate targets not being met and there could be negative impacts on alternative transformation pathways.

Providing directional certainty for the climate turnaround

The project builds on insights from interdisciplinary transformation research and the findings of the ITA project Governance of Radical System Innovations (Go) on the importance of directional certainty for the successful transformation of energy, industry and mobility systems.
