Hydrogen
Opportunities and developments

International energy forecasts promise a bright future for hydrogen as an energy carrier. When produced sustainably, hydrogen offers a variety of advantages:

  • Ecology: low emissions, low noise;
  • Energy: it is not a fossil fuel;
  • Innovation high-tech development;
  • Economy: new industry;
  • Autonomy: less dependent on oil cartel countries
    


HYDROGEN
POWERFUL AND LIGHTWEIGHT

  • is the lightest element in the periodic table - fourteen times lighter than air; 1 Nm3 (normal cubic meter) of hydrogen gas weighs 90 grams;
  • is colourless, odourless, and non-toxic;
  • is not an energy source, but an energy carrier;
  • can be produced of a wide variety of resources;
  • has an enormous capacity for energy storage, even in small quantities;
  • can be stored
   
    


HYDROGEN

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY CARRIER.


The sustainability of hydrogen depends on the manner in which it is produced. At present, the industrial world uses 500 billion cubic metres (m3) each year as a raw material for production purposes. However, the majority of this hydrogen is produced by reforming natural gas.  Sustainably produced hydrogen is created by the process of electrolysis using wind or solar energy.
