Hydrogen and energy have a long shared history – powering the first internal combustion
engines over 200 years ago to becoming an integral part of the modern refining industry.
It is light, storable, energy-dense, and produces no direct emissions of pollutants
or greenhouse gases. But for hydrogen to make a significant contribution to clean
energy transitions, it needs to be adopted in sectors where it is almost completely
absent, such as transport, buildings and power generation.The Future of Hydrogen provides
an extensive and independent survey of hydrogen that lays out where things stand now;
the ways in which hydrogen can help to achieve a clean, secure and affordable energy
future; and how we can go about realising its potential.
