Europe is currently facing an energy crisis due to a combination of factors including supply chain disruptions, low wind speeds, and high gas prices. This has resulted in a surge in energy prices which is having an acute impact on energy poverty, as well as an increased reliance on fossil fuels. Central and Eastern European countries have been especially hard hit. Runaway fuel costs will see residents burn wood, lignite coal and even rubbish to keep warm.

The resulting air pollution will have huge ramifications to human health, not to mention the impact on climate change. However, for many global citizens, energy poverty is a daily struggle. In fact, 840 million people live without access to electricity, and hundreds of millions more experience frequent outages.

We need a vast supply of affordable renewable electricity to extend access to the world’s unserved and underserved population. Could green hydrogen coupled with floating offshore wind be the panacea?

Download our latest article to discover how modularity is needed in green hydrogen from floating offshore wind to solve Europe’s energy crisis.
