Possible tasks may include factors influencing demand for, and supply of, CO2 storage; the interactions between value chains for CO2 storage and blue hydrogen; competition between green and blue hydrogen; and policy instruments to develop value chains for CO2 storage and blue hydrogen. The contribution of the postdoc will be a combination of modelling based on economic theory and empirical work. The postdoc will work closely with senior researchers and a PhD student. Which parts of the project the postdoc will work on will be decided based on discussions with supervisors and other project participants.
