Considering the future of energetics, the most important thing is to understand the case that there will not be a single technology, such as solar energy, which provides a perfect solution for all needs. Instead of that, we will have several different solutions - says Balázs Gábor Lehőcz, Head of the MET Group of Central Europe, responsible for the instrument- and energy infrastructure management. His opinion is that by 2040 renewable energy sources can provide up to 40-50 per cent of the total consumption but to achieve it there is a big need in the development of the storage technology.
In urban transport, electric mobility could gather more ground but in distance traffic its utilization probably, will be reduced. The low level of the filling network is a huge issue in many countries, therefore the hydrogen drive could be a more rational choice. Nowadays, the big question is how natural gas can be mixed with hydrogen in the gas networks and then how to separate them afterwards. If it is going to work one day, the gas network will be able to operate as a hydrogen-filling network.
