There are currently three main methods of using hydrogen as a renewable energy source:
Hydrogen fuel cell technology is the basis for the application of hydrogen technology in the field of mobility. Fuel cells can be used as an alternative to a combustion engine in forklifts, trucks, buses and trains and, increasingly, in cars, boats and aviation.
Burning hydrogen to produce energy is a suitable system for fixed installations and is already used for homes, condominiums and commercial properties in various countries around the world.
Hydrogen can be used as a feedstock for a variety of industrial activities, for example as a base material in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. It can also be burned to produce heat in production cycles that require very high temperatures, such as in steel mills.
HYDROGEN IS EXPECTED TO PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE REVOLUTION OF RENEWABLE ENERGIES. HOWEVER, BEFORE THE USE OF HYDROGEN BECOMES MORE COMMON, SEVERAL KEY CHALLENGES RELATED TO THE CONSUMPTION MUST BE ADDRESSED.
