The Hydex increases transparency in the hydrogen market
The Hydex is a daily published cost-based spot price index for the three most important hydrogen technologies, developed and published by E-Bridge. It is based on the marginal cost of hydrogen production without capital costs, transportation and distribution costs in Germany. The most important variable input parameters are the short-term (daily) electricity and gas market prices as well as the future market price for CO2 emissions (EUA).
Since its first publication in March 2021 on E-Bridge.de and in the Energate Messenger, the Hydex has made the costs and competitiveness of especially green “renewable” hydrogen visible and updated. This makes it possible to estimate reliable hydrogen prices for different technologies and to obtain a calculation aid for investment decisions in the hydrogen market.
