Hydrogen Survey Among the Population
A new survey shows that more than half of the population in Norway is willing to pay more for zero-emission solutions based on hydrogen. - People's attitude to hydrogen has turned significantly in a positive direction in recent years, says the Marketing Director of SINTEF.
Well over half of the respondents answer that hydrogen is an important technology for Norway to invest in. 48% believe that Norway has the expertise and technology to become a world leader within hydrogen.
- It is very gratifying to see that this is now finally maturing in the population, says Møller-Holst. The time has come for upscaling of production and implementation of hydrogen technology. We must facilitate measures to ensure that Norwegian players take market shares in the emerging international markets.
- Hydrogen is not the goal, hydrogen is the means to achieve emission-free and sustainable energy systems. For Norway, hydrogen will contribute to both increased competitiveness, safe jobs and that we reach the climate goals, Møller-Holst emphasises.
The survey was executed by Opinion on assignment from: GCE Ocean Technology, H2Cluster, Arena Ocean Hyway Cluster, NCE Maritime, CleanTech, Renergy, Norsk hydrogenforum, Industrial Green Tech – in collaboration with Transportøkonomisk Institutt and NORCE.
