The Economics of Small-Scale Hydrogen Pilot Projects: Challenges and Lessons Learned

27 Jun 2024
Hydrogen Production, Storage and Infrastructure Development

Hydrogen is a promising energy carrier that can help decarbonize various sectors, but its deployment is still in the early stages, especially for small-scale projects. While hydrogen pilot projects can showcase the potential of the technology and generate valuable data, they often struggle to achieve financial viability. In this presentation, we will explore the economic challenges of small-scale hydrogen pilot projects and the reasons why they often to not proceed past the feasibility stage. We will discuss the high capital costs and technical complexities of hydrogen production, storage, and distribution, and how they affect the economics of small-scale projects. We will also examine the regulatory and policy barriers that impede the growth of the hydrogen market, including the lack of incentives and support for early-stage projects, and the uncertain regulatory framework for hydrogen. Furthermore, we will analyze some case studies of small-scale hydrogen pilot projects and highlight the key lessons learned. Ultimately, this presentation aims to provide insights into the economics of small-scale hydrogen pilot projects and to suggest possible solutions to overcome the challenges and accelerate the deployment of hydrogen at scale.
