They clearly seem to regard hydrogen as the bridge technology to the longer term “net-zero by 2050” goal. Therefore, it is really interesting to be able to infer and explain the thought process behind this approach.
As the world enters into a global recession, it is becoming clear that the European Union may be facing a serious existential crisis… and the coronavirus pandemic just might be the trigger which causes the EU to fall apart.
