For decarbonizing the global electricity production, wind and solar energy has played a central role in replacing coal and natural gas. For the other three major sources of global CO2 emissions; mobility, industry and heating, it is becoming more and more evident that hydrogen is essential to successfully provide a zero-emission alternative. As the simplest and most abundant element in the universe, and the cleanest storage medium for electricity, it is the perfect match for the variable electricity production from wind and solar. With hydrogen technologies becoming commercially mature and ready to be rolled out globally, we are now on our path to transform the energy system into an energy system free of pollution –forever.
