In light of this, I am delighted to announce that Palladian Publications will be launching a brand new publication dedicated to the hydrogen sector this spring. Global Hydrogen Review will focus on the entire spectrum of hydrogen production and applications – from grey and brown to blue and green. Each issue will be packed full of quality keynote articles, detailed case studies and in-depth technical articles from industry experts, highlighting the latest market trends and innovations within the sector. In addition to covering the entire ‘rainbow’ of hydrogen production, other regular topics will include infrastructure & distribution, safety & sustainability, storage, technology advances, and much more.

Our first issue is currently in production and I’m pleased to reveal that we have an excellent line up of articles from leading experts in the hydrogen sector. While I can’t say too much right now, you can expect to read articles on topics including the current status of blue hydrogen (and its role in the energy transition); options for ensuring security of supply; how the transport sector can grow its use of hydrogen; the challenge of integrity management of hydrogen pipelines; the role of simulation in driving value across the market; the use of compression technologies within the sector; and much more. The issue will also include a keynote article examining how to turn the hydrogen debate into tangible market growth.
