Green hydrogen is a promising solution for a decarbonized energy system, and in 2020 the use of hydrogen has increased dramatically around the world. In order to draw attention to the problem of hydrogen energy in Russia and the Republic of Tatarstan, the article analyzes the development paths and main opportunities for the production, transportation, and use of hydrogen at the enterprises of Tatarstan, and calculates the economic efficiency of the “green” hydrogen production by electrolysis at TPPs with CCGTs in Tatarstan. METHODS. Research methods are based on the analysis of literature data and mathematical calculations. RESULTS. Tatarstan, as one of the leading economically developed regions of Russia, could take part in the “green” hydrogen production, the electrochemical equipment design for its production, the development of technologies for the fuel cells use, research and training of highly qualified specialists in the field of hydrogen energy. According to the calculations, the production of the most environmentally friendly hydrogen at TPPs with CCGT in Tatarstan will currently cost an average of 2 euros per kilogram, which is significantly lower than the existing market value. CONCLUSION. Tatarstan can become a competitive region for the “green” hydrogen production and distribution. The main areas of activity should be the pure hydrogen production, the industrial production of freight transport on fuel cells, the production of megawatt-class electrolysers, the utilization of hydrogen-containing petroleum gases at TPPs in gas turbines or in combined cycle power plants with fuel cells.
