Hydrogen roadmap

Last updated: 11 February 2022

Colombia's commitment to low-carbon hydrogen development is framed within four areas: legal and regulatory enablers, market development instruments, support for infrastructure deployment, technological and industrial development. These measures will be implemented in three phases:

1) Lay the foundations for hydrogen, actions to be carried out in the short term (2 years) with the aim to establish a solid foundation of the market.

2) Enable and promote market development, actions to be carried out in the medium term (5 years) with the aim of stimulating early participants in the market and scale up the entire value chain.

3) Monitor and enables new uses, actions to be carried out in the medium/long term.

The roadmap outlines the objectives by 2030:

- 1-3 GW installed electrolysers capacity, implying the installation of at least 1.5-4 GW of FNCER (Fuentes No Convencionales de Energía Renovable)

- 50 kt of hydrogen produced from fossil sources equipped with carbon capture system (CCUS) 

- production cost of 1.7 USD/kg H2 for electrolytic hydrogen 

- 1500-2000 light-duty FCEV and 1000-1500 heavy-duty FCEV

- 50-100 public HRS 

- 40% low-carbon hydrogen use in industry 

In the period 2030-2050, the roadmap envisions the competitiveness of low-carbon hydrogen in many applications, with increase volumes of production and demand and the beginning of export routes to other countries.
