The ecological transition (energy or agro-ecological transition, development issues, etc.) is a subject of public policies. They are complex, sometimes underpinned by blockages or misunderstandings. At IDDRI, we propose possible solutions based on science. We put them on the democratic agenda because they are aimed at political and economic decision-makers, as well as at civil society as a whole. In these podcasts, IDDRI research fellows present their thoughts to shed light on the debate.
Hydrogen is the subject of our new episode.
Is hydrogen the new oil? The possibility of using this gas as an energy source is at the heart of political discussions, particularly in Europe after the invasion of Ukraine, and public subsidies are pouring in. Yes, hydrogen can be an alternative to fossil fuels, but under certain conditions. We need to look at how it is produced, and as closely as possible at its potential uses. What is green hydrogen? Can it really play a role in achieving climate neutrality? In which economic sector would its use be relevant? Can we expect everything from it? Ines Bouacida, climate and energy research fellow, answers Sophie Larmoyer's questions
