Hydrogen Prices

The Hydrogen pricing methodology is derived from the production cost-based model and the technology used in producing green, blue, and grey Hydrogen. This technology is determined by the feedstocks and energy source. Our pricing methodology is based upon combining the price of each feedstock in our database with decades of experiences and expertise in selling industrial hydrogen. The feedstock prices are local to each region/country and updated monthly.

Grey Hydrogen

Hydrogen Calc uses Steam-Methane Reforming (SMR) technological modeling to determine the cost of producing grey Hydrogen. SMR technology has been adopted as the benchmark for the manufacturing of commercial or industrial grade Hydrogen for several for decades.

Blue Hydrogen

The blue Hydrogen model is based on a modified SMR technology where majority of the carbon dioxide generated from the steam methane reformer is captured and sequestered. Hydrogen Calc’s production cost model for blue Hydrogen uses both Methyl-di-ethanol-amine (MDEA) and pressure-swing absorption (PSA) carbon capture technologies.

Green Hydrogen

The green Hydrogen Pricing model presented by Hydrogen Calc uses Hydrogen production technologies where the feedstocks are derived from renewable energy sources. Currently, our models utilize two technologies, Alkaline (ALK) and Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM), for its Hydrogen production cost calculations.


The pricing data provided by Hydrogen Calc may be used to compare Hydrogen production cost around the world.  Also, Hydrogen Calc provides users with the market price of hydrogen for key geographies.

 We offer intelligence that helps with global market assessments and economic evaluations of producing hydrogen globally which includes:

  • Refining global hydrogen intelligence

Our approach utilizes true costs that incorporates:

Actual Country- Specific Energy Cost Updated Monthly

Capital Cost Tracking for The Major Hydrogen Production Technologies

Quarterly Updates of Factors Such as Capital and Labor Costs

Utility Management for The Selective Catalytic Reforming Process For SMR. These Utilities Include Water, Nitrogen, Ammonia, and Power for Ancillary Equipment.

Normalized Pressure Output Assumed for Each Technology at 1500 psig to Ensure a True Face-value Comparison Between Technologies

Oxygen Credits Applied to Regions where High-purity Oxygen from Electrolysers can be Migrated into Local Markets

Refining Intelligence

Hydrogen Calc provides insights into refinery intelligence such as outside hydrogen requirements, hydrogen intensity as well as hydrogen production and consumption intel for key refineries around the world. These pieces of intelligence are geared toward enabling a seamless decision-making process for our clients.

Pricing Calculator

Our pricing calculator allows our users to provide their own pricing for each of the feedstocks based on the selected technology or type of hydrogen and our calculator will provide the hydrogen price in the selected unit of measure.

We also provide the option for users to select their country of choice and we will populate the calculator with the feedstock pricing for them to calculate the hydrogen price.

Spot Pricing

The values inherent in historical data cannot be undermined. Our spot pricing dashboard provides our clients with decades of monthly pricing trends.

The dashboard allows our users to view trend lines based on selected countries, time period, and type of Hydrogen, select their unit of measure, and export the data.

Project Database

Our enormous project database can be filtered by metrics such as location, technology, project status, date online, etc.

Applying the date-online filter can provide insight on the rate of growth of pipeline hydrogen projects compared to actual deployment in terms of final investment decisions. The status of the project can also help our users make a more informed investment decision based on the level of maturity of the project.

Hydrogen Project Dashboard

Hydrogen Calc’s project dashboard enables users to have a quick, intelligent overview of all hydrogen- related projects globally. The dashboard has tool tips and major KPIs that shed light on current and the future direction of the global hydrogen market trends.

Hydrogen General Information

Hydrogen Colored Themes: Industry experts have classified hydrogen into various colors that are a function of the carbon intensity associated with the particular hydrogen production method!

 Gold or White 

Carbon Intensity:  0 kg CO2e/kg of Hydrogen:  Naturally-occurring hydrogen produced by fermenting microbes typically found subsurface.


Carbon Intensity:  0.6 kg CO2e/kg of Hydrogen:  Hydrogen produced through water splitting electrolysis powered by renewable electricity or hydrogen produced by reforming renewable carbon sources.  Yellow hydrogen uses electrolytic technologies but is powered by grid power (carbon intensity of 28.6 kg CO2e/kg of hydrogen)


Carbon Intensity:  2.6 kg CO2e/kg of Hydrogen:  Carbon emissions from steam methane reforming is captured and permanently sequestered typically in underground porous formations or strata.


Carbon Intensity: 4.4 kg CO2e/kg of Hydrogen:  Hydrogen produced through (typically methane or hydrocarbon) pyrolysis that results in hydrogen and solidified carbon.

Pink, Purple, or Red 

Carbon Intensity:  0.4 kg CO2e/kg of Hydrogen:  Hydrogen produced using nuclear power and heat to split water. 


Carbon Intensity:  10.9 kg CO2e/kg of Hydrogen:  Hydrogen produced through steam methane reforming (SMR) technology where natural gas is typically the feedstock.

Brown or Black

Carbon Intensity:  48.7 kg CO2e/kg of Hydrogen:  Hydrogen produced from coal gasification process.
