The importance of hydrogen in the Net zero Emissions Scenario is reflected in its increasing share in cumulative emission reductions. As per the International Energy Agency (IEA) report, strong hydrogen demand growth and the adoption of cleaner technologies for its production enable hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels to avoid up to 60 Gt CO2 emissions in 2021-2050 in the net zero emissions scenario, representing 6% of total cumulative emissions reductions.
