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.
