HYDROGEN ENERGY IN THE FUTURE OF SUSTAINABLE ENERGY POLICIES
Especially in the last decade, global energy policies are undergoing transformations towards more efficient and efficient use of renewable energy sources. Both global climate change and environmental concerns and the energy policies implemented by countries on the basis of energy security include increasing the use of blue energies not only in electricity generation, but also in the industrial and transport sectors. Advances in energy technologies make it possible to obtain hydrogen at less cost, which leads to an increase in demand for hydrogen. In recent years, significant progress has been made in the transport sector and in the use of hydrogen in electricity generation. Hydrogen-powered cars, first produced as prototypes in the 1990s, have now become a commercial technology. In this sense, hydrogen energy has a strategic mission as a sustainable resource capable of directly achieving zero emission targets. In the expansion of hydrogen use, the shipment of hydrogen to consumption geographies that can be transported by ships and railways as a result of the presence of suitable terminal conditions with pipelines as a gas and cryogenic trucks as a liquid will serve to the emergence of the hydrogen economy and the expansion of hydrogen use. The scope of the study focuses on global developments in hydrogen energy. The study aims to address the role of hydrogen energy as a rising resource in global energy policies. The research has a qualitative method and the document analysis method has been used as a data collection technique. According to the findings, hydrogen energy is becoming a rational actor in global energy policies.
