A preliminary evaluation of the hydrogen socioeconomic impact in the European Union energy economy has been performed for 2030 and beyond. Two different sets of hypotheses for hydrogen penetration have been considered: high and low penetration scenarios. For each scenario the hydrogen deployment into stationary and transportation sectors has been studied, and the resulting reduction of CO2 emissions has been evaluated. For both scenarios the major technical, social, and economic impacts deriving from the introduction of hydrogen into the European energy system are also discussed.
