As part of the transition to a zero-carbon economy, hydrogen has emerged as a key player whose importance cannot be underestimated. This revolution revolves around three versions of hydrogen: blue, grey and green, each playing a key role in this energy metamorphosis. Green hydrogen, which is abundant and environmentally friendly, is produced by electrolysis using renewable energies such as solar and wind power.
Our exploration of green hydrogen takes us beyond electrolyzers to explore three essential pillars of the value chain: production, distribution and applications. Green hydrogen production is based on the electrolysis of water, powered by renewable energy sources, creating a clean fuel with zero CO2 emissions. This breakthrough is crucial, as it offers solutions for sectors that are difficult to electrify or decarbonize, such as the steel industry.
Moving on to the distribution of green hydrogen, we discover a safe and efficient transport network that gets this clean fuel to where it’s needed. The success of this venture depends on international collaboration, as the development of a robust infrastructure is essential to ensure the growth of green hydrogen.
Finally, the applications for green hydrogen are remarkably diverse. It can be used to decarbonize high-carbon-impact industrial sectors, offering an environmentally-friendly alternative. For example, it can significantly reduce CO2 emissions in the steel production sector.
Let’s move on to a crucial element: electrolyzers. They are essential links in the green hydrogen production chain. These devices perform electrolysis of water using renewable energy sources, splitting the water into hydrogen and oxygen. Their design, maintenance and performance are crucial to ensuring efficient, cost-effective green hydrogen production. The main aim is to reduce costs and ensure sustainable large-scale production.
