EWI H2Market Index

In order to give an overview of the market development of hydrogen in Germany, EWI has developed the H2Market Index on behalf of the Deutscher Verein des Gas- und Wasserfaches (DVGW). The aim of the H2Market Index is to measure stakeholders’ perceptions of the current development of a hydrogen market.

In 2023, the H2Market Index developed by EWI has a value of 42, indicating that stakeholders currently assess the market ramp-up as almost neutral with a slight negative trend. The index comprises four topic areas: innovation environment, political and regulatory framework, infrastructure expansion, and market development. The index results show a mixed view of market actors across the four topic areas. While the innovation environment and market development are considered almost neutral, the assessment of infrastructure development stands out with a rather negative perception among market actors.
