The “Green Hydrogen” myth

22/08/2021

This is a really interesting article by Nigel Howard (link) which demonstrates how “green” hydrogen really is the fossil fuel industries wet dream – a superficially “green” solution to all our problems that will delay the transition out of fossil fuels for our transport, our electricity grids, our industries and our exports.

Green hydrogen

As a medium for storage or transmission of renewable energy, hydrogen (and even worse ammonia) would waste significant proportions (26-57%) of the stored energy further delaying  decarbonisation.

Much better for us to focus first on replacing all coal-fired electricity power with renewable sources.
