Alexander Brown on how industrial policy adds momentum to China’s push into hydrogen
State support has been key to China’s success in fostering new green technology industries such as solar and batteries. In the green hydrogen sector, China wants to kickstart a similar process, says MERICS Analyst Alexander Brown. The expansion of China’s industry can be seen in areas like research & development investments and local policy support. Now Chinese manufacturers of green hydrogen technology are catching up and starting to export into third markets, posing a challenge to leading firms in Europe and elsewhere.
