Energy Law Report Publishes Akin Gump Article on “The Emerging Hydrogen Economy”

Energy Law Report has published the article “The Emerging Hydrogen Economy: Regulation, Policy, and Industry Update,” written by Akin Gump corporate partner Michael Joyce and associate Euan Strachan. Originating as a blog post on AG Speaking Energy, the article looks at regulation and policy in the hydrogen sector and discusses “some of the key aspects of legislation in those countries that are leading the way in the field of hydrogen development.”

Joyce and Strachan write that some countries “are racing to ensure that they are either at the industry’s forefront or not left behind as development of the hydrogen economy begins to gather pace.” The common view, though, they say, “is that work needs to be undertaken to update, harmonize and supplement existing legislation and regulations in order to ensure that hydrogen can fulfill its potential as a widely used, global energy source.”
