Hydrogen: An outline
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. On earth however, it is more commonly found in the form of compounds, with the most frequent being water.
By using electrolysis, one can split water into its constituents: hydrogen and oxygen. This process can be achieved using green electricity from renewable sources such as wind, solar, hydro, etc... The resulting hydrogen is considered green. It can then be recombined with oxygen to release energy and clean water.
Unlocking the true potential of renewable energy with GREEN HYDROGEN
Renewable sources of energy are unpredictable by nature, with a varying energy supply and demand throughout the day and year.
Hydrogen production brings stability and normalises electricity production.
Energy production via fuel cell using hydrogen during low renewable energy supply
Hydrogen production via electrolysis during high renewable energy supply
