Most that have looked at the economics of the title fuel believe that it will play an important role in the transition to a greenhouse gas free economy in future years. However the big question is, when?

First of all this answer depends not only on the specific application of this fuel, and the technology to convert the fuel back to energy, but also the application profile and where it is being evaluated.

In this post we will look at the general case – how much is it likely to cost to produce and store green hydrogen at various points in the future. We will also look at other factors that reduce or increase these costs. Finally we will end with a brief section that contains links to various other publications that will let readers drill down for additional information regarding specific applications.
