Is green in the pipeline? Sensing gas’ potential contribution to climate change mitigation

Natixis Research highlights the role of natural gas and related assets as an indispensable link in the journey towards carbon neutrality.


Sensing the path to large-scale deployment

In this report, we explore this nascent industry, highlighting:

  • The cases where uses of the molecule in its low-carbon forms (green hydrogen produced through low-carbon electrolysis and blue hydrogen produced through CCS-equipped steam methane reforming) can have a meaningful contribution to climate change mitigation;
  • The hurdles that need to be overcome for the molecule and its end-uses to find large-scale deployment and
  • The presently-emerging avenues followed to spark a virtuous cycle of increased demand and lower costs all along the value chain.

  2. Making sense of the main types of waste in terms of their source, composition and management options
  3. Highlighting which currently available financial instruments and market practices are relevant for financing sustainable waste management

OUTLOOK 2021: a return to (ab)normality

"More than ever, 2020 has confirmed that what we know, is that we know nothing. Nevertheless, it is essential to analyse the facts objectively. We present our macroeconomic and financial scenarios and discuss structural topics for the coming years: energy transition with a focus on the major players in hydrogen, and “smart cities” being called upon to change drastically and no doubt for the better."
