As elsewhere in the world, grey hydrogen produced via unabated fossils currently dominates the US market with a price of about $0.30/kg that excludes the capital cost needed to bring new capacity online.The Morgan Stanley analysts admit the dramatic fall depends on ongoing reductions in the costs of electrolyser technology, and subsidies to support green H2 electrolysis, as well as an extension of the wind power production tax credit to 2024, but said they see both “as highly possible”.[Andrew Lee]More: Green hydrogen could match grey by 2023 thanks to $5/MWh wind power: Morgan Stanley Morgan Stanley: Green hydrogen could be economically competitive by 2023

Ghana midfielder André Ayew who is recovering from injury, was seen in the famous Parisian nightclub VIP Room, accompanied by many PSG players.The Ghana international was pictured with several PSG players in a recent night out in Paris which has sparked the criticism from some Marseille fans.Arm in arm with Edinson Cavani and Jeremy Menez, the Ghanaian also posed with the business owner, Jean Roch, who published the photo.The photo also had Marco Verratti, Salvatore Sirigu and Ezequiel Lavezzi which sparked some suspicion among Marseille fans that Ayew is plotting to join PSG.But Ayew insists he is not leaving Marseille and that he is friends with players of others clubs.“Everyone knows my love of the club (Marseille) and the colours (of Marseille) have always been ingrained in me,” Ayew responded on Twitter. “Please lets have some respect for each other. There is the rivalry of the clubs but there is also a reality that we are all human beings.”Ayew is expected to return to action by the end of next month.
