    Hydrogen, a New Energy Vector for a Decarbonised Europe

    Introduction Low carbon hydrogen will play a crucial role in Europe’s decarbonised future economy, as shown in many recent scenarios. In a system soon dominated by variable renewables such as solar and wind, hydrogen links electricity with industrial heat, materials such as steel and fertiliser, space heating, and transport fuels. Furthermore, hydrogen can be seasonally stored and transported cost-effectively over long distances, to a large extent using the existing natural gas infrastructure. Green hydrogen in combination with green electricity has the potential to entirely replace hydrocarbons, although blue hydrogen will help meeting hydrogen demand in the short to medium term.

    Hydrogen Energy – Is It Worth the Hype?

    (Renewable Energy Institute) A Hydrogen Container. Learn more on our Hydrogen Energy course
    WHAT IS HYDROGEN? Hydrogen is a zero-carbon fuel that produces only water as a by-product when consumed in a fuel cell. Hydrogen energy is produced from a variety of domestic resources including natural gas, biomass, solar power, wind power, nuclear power, and water electrolysis. Hydrogen’s zero-carbon waste and variety of use make it an attractive option for fuel in transportation and electricity generation, as well as for ammonia production and product refinement. It has been embraced as the “clean fuel of the future” by lobbyists over recent years. There are three main types of Hydrogen. Firstly, ‘grey’…
