U.S. Must Take Lead Role in Hydrogen Use For Our Energy Future

June 15, 2021

For a century our country has relied on fossil fuels to power our economy. But that is beginning to change with wind, solar, renewable fuels, hydrogen, advanced nuclear options, and more.

The effort to decarbonize our economy and protect the planet from greenhouse gas emissions is now aggressively underway in the U.S. and other parts of the world. That major effort to reduce carbon emissions calls on a new fuel that is clean, widely available, and storable.

Using hydrogen and fuel cells for clean, reliable, and grid-independent power is an exciting commitment to a fuel that can be widely available and emits only water as a byproduct. Hydrogen and fuel cells must clearly be a significant part of our energy future.

If we are to achieve a clean electric grid by 2035 and use wind and solar for that grid, we must have a means of storing energy for the intermittency that is a characteristic of those power options. Hydrogen can be used to provide that storage.
