The constant development of green energy has been running for several years. Mainly used for energy generation, they also have an increasingly important place in our industries and will develop within them in the future.
The global market of renewable energies is constantly growing. The share of renewable energies in the world’s final consumption is around 18% in 2020. Several types of renewable energy have increased considerably in the past few years, such as wind and solar power. For example, since 1990, the production of wind energy has increased 226 times while that of solar energy has increased almost 500 times! A trend that will continue and even accelerate in the coming years.
Lower costs, technological advances and the growing demand for cleaner energy are continuously pushing renewable energy upwards. Investment in renewable energies has also been steadily increasing in recent years, with €255 billion worldwide in 2018. This means that renewable energies will continue to expand worldwide, both for energy production and for use in industry. Indeed, green mobility is growing in demand within industry, and many companies are turning to new, cleaner modes of transport. Cars, trains, and planes will therefore gradually be converted to green energies, such as hydrogen.
Green energy in industrial mobility:
We will focus here on industrial technologies for green mobility. Thus, within the automobile industry, hydrogen is developing rapidly. According to Laurent Favre, Managing Director of Plastic Omnium, a French automotive company that has turned to hydrogen energy, hydrogen vehicles should have a real foothold in the automotive market by 2030. This technology, which emits no CO2 emissions and has a range and recharging time comparable to that of a conventional combustion engine, appears to be the main alternative to oil.
The automobile industry, and the transport industry in general, could therefore turn massively to hydrogen over the next few decades, for personal and commercial vehicles, but also for other means of transport such as trains and planes. With Toyota and Hyundai already involved in automotive hydrogen energy, Asia has a huge commercial potential and is already positioning itself as an anchor point for the hydrogen automobile.
Green energies will therefore develop considerably in the industrial mobility sector and will generate new economic and commercial opportunities.
