We are often told that a hydrogen grid is essential if Europe wants to reach its climate targets. Such claims are often based on modelling with strong fixed assumptions.

In this FSR Insights event, Tom Brown, TU Berlin, examines results from a highly-detailed energy system model that endogenises as many choices about energy supply and infrastructure as possible. The presentation explores trade-offs between electricity grid expansion and hydrogen networks, as well as between e-fuel imports and domestic production.

While energy trade is always cost-optimal, there are many near-optimal solutions with attractive properties of resilience, lower land usage and less infrastructure lock-in. The FSR Insights rounds off with a discussion of the benefits of open energy modelling for infrastructure decision-making.
