What is Green Hydrogen?

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe; however, it is not found in any natural deposits. One of the constituents of water, hydrogen is safe to use if handled correctly. It is a non-toxic gas at room temperature and atmospheric pressure but can explode under certain conditions when mixed with air, like natural gas. In its purest form, hydrogen is a colorless and odorless gaseous substance that can be burnt to produce heat.

There are multiple ways of producing Hydrogen, which define the nomenclature that the produced hydrogen gets, e.g., Brown Hydrogen if produced from coal or lignite, and Gray Hydrogen if produced through steam methane reformation using fossil natural gas as the feedstock. Green hydrogen is produced using renewable electricity (e.g., solar or wind) to power the electrolyzers for splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen without the release of any harmful emissions.

With Green hydrogen and derived fuels such as green ammonia working as a bridge, this will be able to transform green electricity into transportation fuel, or as feedstock for industrial processes, where currently no green alternatives exist. In this way, green hydrogen can immensely enhance the decarbonization potential of renewable energy.

How is Green Hydrogen produced?

Green Hydrogen is produced from renewable electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen in an electrolyzer. Electrolysis is a process that splits hydrogen from water using an electric current. This reaction takes place in a unit called an electrolyzer.

Electrolyzers can range in size from small, appliance-size equipment that is well-suited for small-scale distributed hydrogen production to large-scale, central production facilities that could be tied directly to renewable or other non-greenhouse-gas-emitting forms of electricity production. Electrolysis itself does not produce any by-products or emissions other than Hydrogen and Oxygen.

Electrolyzes consist of an anode and a cathode separated by an electrolyte. Different electrolyzers function in slightly different ways, mainly due to the different types of electrolyte material involved. The complete system also includes pumps, power electronics, gas separators, and other auxiliary components such as storage tanks.

How Green Hydrogen is used?

There are numerous ways in which Hydrogen can be used. It can be burnt to produce heat, fed into a fuel cell to make electricity, used as feedstock in various industrial applications, or used as storage to reproduce the energy as and when required.

What are the applications of Green Hydrogen?

The potential of Green Hydrogen to create a Net-Zero World is real as it has an ability to provide a large scale decarbonize energy solutions to the variety of applications that currently rely heavily on fossil fuels. The most important benefit of Green Hydrogen is zero carbon emissions, which makes it the best fuel in our fight against climate change and energy transition.
