NECP - Hydrogen development

Source: IEA/IRENA Renewables Policies Database
Last updated: 27 October 2021

Hydrogen is expected to play a key role in ireland's transition to a low-carbon economy and society. Ireland has significant potential for production of electricity from renewable sources and the excess can be used to produce green hydrogen, which will support the integration of variable renewable sources in the grid.

Ireland will develop its hydrogen technology and invest in corresponding R&D technologies. Green hydrogen in particular will be used at its maximum potential, as a fuel for power generation, in manufacturing, energy storage and transport.

 Although NECPs were laid out before the Covid-19 crisis happened, their completion, confirmed in 2021, is linked to the implementation of national recovery measures.
