The world is at a critical crossroad where sustainable and clean energy sources are crucial for the future. Among the various alternatives, green hydrogen has emerged as a promising solution, captivating the attention of transport and industry professionals alike. To gain a deeper understanding of their perceptions, opinions, and expectations, we conducted a survey. In this article, we delve into the results of this survey and present two infographics that highlights the thoughts of these professionals on green hydrogen.
What was our hydrogen survey about?
Our survey, accessible through this link, crafted a series of questions to gauge the opinions and knowledge of transport and industry professionals regarding green hydrogen. Participants were presented with a wide range of topics, including their familiarity with green hydrogen, its potential applications, perceived challenges, and overall outlook for the future. The survey aimed to provide valuable insights into the thoughts and attitudes of these professionals, offering a comprehensive perspective on the role of hydrogen in transforming various sectors.
Most participants have never driven a hydrogen vehicle and yet believe it’s the future
Among the participants, comprising business managers, CEOs, transport directors, logistics directors, technical directors, innovation directors, and operations managers, an astounding 88% admitted to never having driven a hydrogen vehicle. Furthermore, the survey shed light on another noteworthy aspect, with 35% of participants admitting to a lack of understanding regarding the distinction between green hydrogen and gray hydrogen. This knowledge gap emphasizes the importance of raising awareness and providing clearer information about different types of hydrogen production methods and their environmental implications.
Despite the knowledge gap surrounding different types of hydrogen, an overwhelming 77% of participants firmly believe that green hydrogen holds the key to the future. This resounding optimism signifies the recognition and understanding among professionals that green hydrogen, produced from renewable energy sources, has the potential to revolutionize multiple industries and play a crucial role in decarbonizing our transportation systems. The fact that such a significant majority of participants share this conviction speaks to the growing confidence in the viability and transformative power of green hydrogen as a sustainable energy solution. It also underscores the potential for widespread adoption and investment in green hydrogen technologies in the coming years.
