Securing the power of Green Hydrogen

Tailor-made risk transfer solutions for the energy transition

    Green hydrogen is the missing piece

    Find out in 2 minutes why Green Hydrogen is a game changer for the energy transition.

    Finding alternatives to fossil fuels has never been more important. Green hydrogen is one of the most important pillars of a successful energy transition towards net-zero targets. It can balance seasonal fluctuations in renewable electricity production and provides energy for hard-to-abate industries.

    Technology development has made great progress, and policymakers support the innovative energy source - in 2022, 30 countries have drafted a strategy for green hydrogen. However, the total amount is still small and new projects often cannot realise their full potential as sufficient capital is needed for large-scale deployment.

    Over 70 countries have national hydrogen strategies in the works
    Electrolyzer sales raise worldwide 400%
    Hydrogen could meet up to 24% of the world's energy needs by 2050

    As a pioneer in green hydrogen production you face multiple challenges:

    Pressure to act fast and deliver large-scale volumes
    Convince investors to provide huge amounts of capital
    Need to prove that the new technology can be scaled up
    High production, maintenance and repair costs
    Long-term performance risk with excessive warranty claims stress balance sheet

    Let’s join forces for a Green Hydrogen future

    To scale your green hydrogen business you need to convince investors to provide sufficient capital and prospects to trust the performance of your technology. Munich Re’s HySure risk transfer helps to de-risk large-scale projects: Product and performance guarantees for electrolyser manufacturers pave the way for more financial stability by mitigating performance and warranty claims concerns of investors, banks and customers.
