Surging natural gas prices in Europe, driven by rising demand and tight supply, are pushing up electricity prices; to prevent volatility, governments need to commit more clearly to a low-carbon future.
Climate change and taxes may be some of the only true certainties in life. To protect ourselves better, we should make careful choices on how they interact.
Despite different strategies, the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States, China and Japan all expect hydrogen to play a significant role in the decarbonisation of their economies by expanding its use in energy and transport systems.
Policies are needed to support green fuel switching by households; support should be phased out as the carbon price rises.

Rapid emission cuts need a carbon price for the whole economy. This must be introduced in careful stages.
Policymakers must address the need to displace carbon-intensive hydrogen with low-carbon hydrogen, and incentivise the uptake of hydrogen as a means to decarbonise sectors with hard-to-reduce emissions.
If the three biggest economies agree a carbon tax on imports, it will catalyse climate action globally.
