Hydrogen is remarkable. The lightest and most abundant of all elements, it is non-toxic, non-corrosive and, when used as a zero-carbon fuel, emits nothing but water vapour and warm air. It is destined to play an important role in the decarbonisation of the world’s economies. But how do we move from hydrogen theory to hydrogen reality?
Europe is too reliant on Russian gas. In fact, Europe is too reliant on gas full stop but it being mainly Russian gas makes it even more problematic.
