Hydrogen Economy:

  • Hydrogen economy is a proposed system of energy using hydrogen. It is an economical device by which hydrogen can be made from water using renewable sources such as wind and solar, to exclude fossil fuels from circulation and to limit global warming, and by its combustion, only water vapor is expelled into the atmosphere.
  • The current hydrocarbon economy relies mainly on petroleum and natural gas for heat and transport. Where burning of hydrocarbon fuels emits carbon dioxide and other pollutants, hydrogen is a better environmental option.
