Make Hydrogen Happen

The technology involved in using H2 as an energy source can be costly for several reasons.

As much as hydrogen fuel cells have considerable potential to play a sizeable role in the global energy transition away from fossil fuels in order to achieve decarbonization goals, the expense associated with their use remains quite high when compared with other available alternatives.

Understanding where the expense comes from involves knowing how they work.

Hydrogen fuel cells generate electrical power while producing only water vapor and warmth as emissions. As such, their use is considered to have zero-carbon operations.  That decarbonization impact only grows when green H2 is used, meaning that it is produced using processes powered by renewable energy such as wind and solar.  That said, the most common production method currently used involves burning natural gas, a fossil fuel.
