The term “hydrogen economy” refers to the vision of using hydrogen as a clean, low-carbon energy resource to meet the world’s energy needs, replacing traditional fossil fuels in various applications, and forming a substantial part of a clean energy portfolio. Two key developments have contributed to the growth of hydrogen energy technologies in recent years: the cost of producing hydrogen using renewable energy sources has come down and continues to fall, while the urgency of greenhouse gas emission mitigation has increased.
