What is Green Hydrogen?
In layman’s terms, green hydrogen is hydrogen obtained from electrolysis of water with electricity generated by zero carbon sources, such as solar or wind.
Why so much hype behind it?
Well, most experts agree than GH2 will be essential in meeting our objective to reduce Co2 emissions in the near future. Why? Hydrogen is abundant and its supply is virtually limitless. Pound for pound hydrogen has an energy density nearly three times that of fossil fuels, and the only by-product generated is oxygen. Hydrogen can also provide a solution where electrification can’t. It essentially has unlimited uses, it can be used in: heating for both industrial or residential use, it can be used as a feedstock to decarbonize certain industries, it can be used in transportation, from shipping to cars to clean fuels for aviation, it can be used in the petrochemical industry or in the chemical industry for agriculture and much more.
