Hydrogen projects, burgeoning globally, command substantial investments. Amid the evolving availability landscape of hydrogen, from production to end-use, investors have to assess complex projects. Deciphering where to direct their attention requires precision.
Consider these three crucial elements.
Hydrogen mobility is nascent; supply lead times for vehicles may vary and distribution channels are still limited. Due to strong demand, production lead times of key components like tanks and compressors vary from one project to the next. Fuel cell production seems less constrained for now, yet vigilance is prudent.
Investor Insight: Carefully gauge the context and lead times within your project consideration.
Gaseous hydrogen logistics present some complexity due to the wide range of pressures involved. Varied volume and weight constraints entail multiple storage methods, each with many options for gas transfers procedures offering a wide array of possible tradeoffs between energy performance, transfer time, and gas losses.
The use of liquid hydrogen requires careful preparation and operational management because of its very low temperature.
Investor Wisdom: Ensuring consistent hydrogen access to customers necessitates meticulous logistics. Logistics’ impact at least equals that of production and use.
Hydrogen consuming projects invite potential supply disruptions. Unlike fossil fuels, alternative supply sources are limited. High inherent reliability is vital to avert service disruption that could lead to customer trust erosion.
Recommendation to Investors: Analyze project reliability comprehensively. Safeguard service quality and plan for contingencies to nurture customer satisfaction.
