Could the green hydrogen boom lead to additional renewable capacity by 2026?
It is predicted by IEA (International Energy Agency) that, by 2040, global energy demand will increase by 25-30%. This, along with the push for electric vehicles and net-zero targets, has created a ripple effect on the economy. To understand this effect, let us go into some details.
The cryptocurrency economy is expanding quickly, putting new demands on the electricity grids. However, crypto mining also presents exciting chances for energy businesses to generate new revenue streams, enhance demand response, and potentially hasten the growth of the long-term renewable resource base.

Legal and Regulatory Objectives for Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS)
The term CCUS, or carbon capture, utilization, and storage, is a crucial technique for reducing emissions that can be used across the energy system. Carbon dioxide (CO2) from fuel combustion or industrial processes is captured via CCUS technology, transported by ship or pipeline, and then used as a resource to produce valuable goods or services or permanently stored underground in geological formations.

Carbon Markets: The Solution to a Sustainable Future in the Face of Climate Change
The world is changing, and with it, the way we produce and consume energy. Fossil fuels are becoming a thing of the past as countries worldwide begin to invest in renewable energy sources. This shift away from traditional forms of energy production has led to the creation of carbon markets.
Nobody is surprised by the non-renewable nature and steady planetary depletion of fossil fuels. To meet the needs of energy deployment, we can instead employ renewable energy from sources that will never deplete or reduce.
The widespread death and economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted governments and international organizations to proclaim a global state of emergency. In particular, the energy sector has been under intense strain because of the pandemic.
On a global scale, fossil fuels like coal and gas account for over 60% of all electrical generation. This implies that an electric vehicle generates approximately the same carbon dioxide emissions per mile as a gasoline or diesel vehicle.
Fuel cell vehicles have many advantages over traditional gasoline-powered cars. They're more efficient, they produce zero emissions, and they have the potential to revolutionize the way we think about transportation.
Energy experts predict that the growing use of electric vehicles will cause the demand for fossil fuels to decline, upsetting the market for such fuels. The electric vehicle revolution also has the potential to increase demand for natural gas as a fuel for plug-in vehicles. Even if the cost of purchasing an electric vehicle (commonly abbreviated to EV) is higher, they are typically more affordable to operate. Comparatively, driving 100 miles in an EV will cost, on average, £4-6 (USD 5.50-8), as opposed to £13-16 in a gasoline or diesel vehicle.
With the transition from gas-powered to electric automobiles, there is a genuine risk that the growth of EVs may overwhelm the electricity system, causing an energy shortage at peak hours. The energy consulting company Delta-EE predicts that by 2030 when no diesel and gasoline vehicles will be permitted to be sold in the UK, there will be approximately 14 million EVs on British roads and 84 million in Europe. On the other hand, the market for electric car charging infrastructure in the United States was estimated to be worth USD 2.85 billion in 2021, and it is anticipated to increase at a CAGR of 36.9 percent from 2022 to 2030.
Environmental sustainability plays a huge role in Industry 4.0, and this concept is increasingly adopted and practiced by people, both in work and other spheres.
