Ammonia vs. Hydrogen: Cost for 2030’s Low-Carbon Powerhouse

Here’s an article posted in Natural Gas World that explains why Ammonia emerges as cheaper in cost.

According to the article, 

  • Ammonia is a cheaper low-carbon fuel option for power generation than hydrogen.
  • Transport cost of hydrogen is the primary reason for ammonia being cheaper.
  • Even using the assumptions that result in the highest cost of ammonia and the lowest cost of hydrogen, the resulting power is $10/mn Btu cheaper when ammonia is combusted.
  • Blue rather than green ammonia and hydrogen will dominate the low-carbon fuel mix in 2030.
