Hydrogen is a form of energy that can be produced from renewable sources, such as wind and solar power. Green hydrogen can be used to power vehicles or other machines in the same way as petrol. Some experts believe that green hydrogen could become part of our everyday lives within five years.
Green hydrogen—produced by electrolysis powered by renewable electricity—is a zero-emissions fuel. It is made from water and does not produce carbon emissions when burned. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, making it a potentially sustainable, clean energy source that could be used for transportation or as an alternative to fossil fuels.
Hydrogen is simple to store and transport.
Hydrogen gas can be stored in tanks, or turned into a liquid. Hydrogen can also be stored as a solid and even via a chemical reaction.
All of these methods of storing hydrogen have their own pros and cons.
Storing hydrogen in tanks presents the most practical solution for transportation, but it’s not without its drawbacks: hydrogen must be kept at extremely low temperatures and pressure to prevent it from turning back into water vapor—which means that it takes energy to produce the gas in the first place. The good news is that this energy-intensive process is far less harmful to the environment than other forms of fossil fuel production, such as coal or oil processing; however, this method still requires more carbon dioxide emissions than if you were simply using electricity directly (and no one wants an electric car that has to plug itself into its own wall).
Another option is liquid storage—in which case we’re talking about using liquid nitrogen under very cold conditions again because water would freeze otherwise—but this method does run pretty warm compared with other options so there are higher costs involved with heating up both ends before sending them somewhere else where they can be used later on down line.”
Hydrogen has a global market of $130 billion
It is expected to grow five times by 2030. It is used in various industries such as the food industry, medical industry, oil and gas industry and chemical industry. To name a few applications:
- Food production: Hydrogen is used in the production of fertilizer, pharmaceuticals and plastics for packaging. Hydrogen can also be used as an alternative fuel source for vehicles powered by fuel cells (FCVs).
- Medical applications: Oxygen-rich hydrogen can be injected into the bloodstream to increase blood oxygenation and reduce infarction size after stroke or heart attack incidents. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) or carbon dioxide (CO2) may be used instead if you have breathing problems at high altitudes. A mixture of CO2 with oxygen is known as soda lime; it’s stored under pressure so that carbon dioxide doesn’t escape into open spaces while transporting it from place to place.
A safer option
- Hydrogen, when burned, only produces steam (water vapor), and does not emit carbon dioxide or other pollutants.
- Hydrogen is abundant in the universe.
- Hydrogen can be produced using renewable energy.
- Hydrogen is safe to handle and store because it is a gas at room temperature, which means that you don’t have to worry about storing it as a liquid like gasoline or other fossil fuels can be.
- It has been used for many years by NASA to fuel rockets for space exploration because it doesn’t pollute the environment when burnt (although this process requires huge amounts of electricity).
Its storing capacity are far better than conventional fuels
Hydrogen has tremendous energy density, making it ideal for heavy-duty applications. This means that you can store more hydrogen in a smaller space than other fuels like diesel or gasoline.
Heavy-duty vehicles like buses and trucks are the perfect candidates to run on hydrogen fuel cells because they need to carry large amounts of cargo over long distances. Using hydrogen instead of fossil fuels allows these vehicles to reduce their emissions while maximizing their efficiency on long trips. The only byproduct produced by a fuel cell is water vapor, which makes them much cleaner than traditional engines that burn fossil fuels like diesel or gasoline!
Hydrogen is everywhere
This abundance of hydrogen has made it a prime target for energy generation. The second most abundant element in the universe is oxygen, which forms water (H 2 O). Hydrogen and oxygen are also the two most abundant elements on Earth. This abundance makes green hydrogen an easy source to obtain.
Hydrogen can be found in all of the elements within our solar system including stars, comets, interstellar gas clouds and even deep space; however it must be separated from other compounds before being used as fuel or else it will explode when mixed with air due to its flammability.
It is super efficient
Compared to petrol, hydrogen-power vehicles are 2-3 times more efficient. Hydrogen is a clean fuel source that does not produce any emissions when burned. This means that it has much lower carbon dioxide emissions than petroleum products such as gasoline or diesel. Compared to electric cars powered by fossil fuels, hydrogen fuel cell cars have higher energy density and are able to travel longer distances on a single charge since they run on stored energy rather than batteries.
It is a clean fuel too
Green hydrogen is produced by electrolysis powered by renewable electricity, which means that when it’s used as fuel, it doesn’t produce any emissions. In contrast to biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel, green hydrogen contains no carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) in its chemical composition.
The only by-product of hydrogen combustion is water vapor: a non-toxic gas with zero impact on the environment. And because hydrogen doesn’t burn dirty like fossil fuels do—it actually produces clean energy—when you use green hydrogen as a fuel source to create electricity or power your vehicle or home appliances, there are essentially zero emissions produced during this process!
A carbon-neutral future is possible, but it won’t happen overnight. Hydrogen could be a key component of that future, making use of renewable energy and producing only water vapor as a byproduct. In addition to being used for cars and trucks, hydrogen has many other applications like storing energy from wind or solar power plants or fueling airplanes. The technology to produce green hydrogen already exists today; what remains is increasing production capacity so that prices will come down and make it accessible globally. This process may take years or even decades depending on how quickly governments support this transition away from fossil fuels
