Giving Compass' Take:
• CauseArtist discusses green hydrogen energy and fuel cells as a viable option to get our planet to zero emissions faster and not rely solely on solar and wind power.
• What are the potential problems with hydrogen power?
Franc Pierre Etienne recently stated that “2020 – 2030 will be for hydrogen what the 1990s were for solar and wind.” So what exactly is hydrogen energy?
Hydrogen is considered an alternative fuel under the Energy Policy Act of 1992. According to the US department of energy, “The interest in hydrogen as an alternative transportation fuel stems from its ability to power fuel cells in zero-emission FCEVs, its potential for domestic production, its fast filling time, and the fuel cell’s high efficiency.”
With so many countries and states aiming to be 100% powered by renewable energy in the coming decades, a recurring problem seems to be the inability to rely solely on solar and wind. Hydrogen energy and fuel cells can potentially mend this gap, and get our planet to zero emissions faster.
However, hydrogen transportation and storage costs have prevented the hydrogen economy from booming – until now.
