Hydrogen (H2) is the most abundant element in the universe and could be the key to “decarbonizing” the planet.

Scientists have made it clear: if we want to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we must find a way to stop global temperatures from rising further.

The challenge is immense. Temperatures are already 1 degree Celsius above pre-industrial levels, and according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), just rising another 0.5 C the effects could be devastating.

Faced with this scenario, many countries are urgently looking for ways to solve their energy needs without continuing to harm the environment.

One of the solutions that some nations are developing is that of green hydrogen, also know as renewable hydrogen or e-Hydrogen.
