Is Hydrogen the Future of Clean Energy?

Are we leading towards a new clean energy future based on Hydrogen? Find out how the world's energy markets will change in the years ahead.
AUSTIN, Texas - Feb. 2, 2022 - PRLog -- Is Hydrogen The Next Big Thing?

Time flies. It's been six years since we reported on the introduction of Toyota's hydrogen-powered passenger car, the Murai.

A lot's happened since 2015, and for most of us, we'd probably assume that the battle between electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles has long been settled in favor of electric.

But the battle between these competing technologies (and the requisite billions of infrastructure required to back them up) is heating up again.

We're on the cusp of war to establish the dominant energy paradigm for the next 50 years.

And it will prove to be a far bigger rivalry than some of the most epic technology battles of the past, including the video player competition between Sony's Betamax and JVC's VHS tape format or Thomas Edison's epic fight for a direct current electric power grid — which ultimately lost out to Westinghouse's alternating-current system.

The question before us is whether we will have a future power-grid primarily based on solar and wind derived electric power, stored in massive batteries, or if we will move to an infrastructure that chiefly relies on hydrogen to store energy, heat / cool our homes, and power our vehicles (including airplanes) — or will we see a mixed solution that elements aspects from each of these rival competing systems.

Billions of dollars are on the line, and the temperature of the planet may hang in the balance, which makes us think of Benjamin Franklin's apocryphal quote after signing the Declaration of Independence.

"We must all hang together, or … we shall all hang separately."

— Benjamin Franklin

Billions To Be Invested Worldwide To Create A New Hydrogen Economy

So where does hydrogen fit in the future plans of the world's energy markets?

If we look at proposed plans around the world, hydrogen figures to be a big player.

With the recent climate disasters in mind, many of the world's political leaders are acting now to create investment plans for hydrogen-based energy infrastructure to replace our current system that relies primarily on burning fossil fuels.

Let's take a survey of the current plans.

▪ United States

The US Department of Energy has created a comprehensive plan to transform the American energy market based on a solar and hydrogen infrastructure.

President Biden is on board and has been touting green energy infrastructure plans as a way to create new high-paying jobs and help the country transition to renewables.
