As the world races to decarbonize, countries around the world have been adding hydrogen fuel to their current and future energy plans. Not just any kind of hydrogen, specifically green hydrogen. Green hydrogen fuel is produced using renewable energy to power a process known as electrolysis. The other two types of hydrogen, grey and blue hydrogen, are produced by fossil fuels – the only difference between these two is that blue hydrogen incorporates carbon capture technologies to lower overall emissions. Electrolysis produces green hydrogen without using fossil fuels by powering an electrolyser with solar, wind or hydro power. The electrolyser runs an electric current through water producing green hydrogen and emitting water (H2O) instead of carbon dioxide (CO2). Goldman Sachs estimates that by 2050 25% of renewable electricity could be used to produce green hydrogen.
