Green Hydrogen Production in Slovakia as Part of the Circular Economy

Pavol ŠtullerPeter DrábikDominika Vernerová


The global energy system needs to perform a profound transformation to achieve the targets set by the Paris Agreement. In this context, low carbon electricity production from renewable sources, embedded with then global and national circulation economies, may become the preferred energy source. The share of electricity in all the energy consumed by end users worldwide will need to increase by 40% in 2050 to achieve the decarbonized energy world envisaged by the Paris agreement. However, the total decarbonization of specific industrial sectors, such as transport, production industry that require highgrade heat, may be difficult only be means of electrification. This challenge could be addressed by hydrogen from renewable that allows large amounts of renewable energy to be channeled from the power sector to end users. Even though Slovakia has relatively lowcarbon electricity production structure, hydrogen production may represent the solution to such pressing issues as shutting down of coal power plants and mining in the Upper Nitra region and can also be the missing link in the energy transition of Slovakia and become the integrated part of the circular economy focused, among others, on decarbonization.
