Both government and industry need to come to terms with reality of hydrogen, according to David Strahan, the author of The Last Oil Shock: A Survival Guide to the Imminent Extinction of Petroleum Man. Writing in today’s edition of ODAC Newsletter, he points out the short-term focus of current hydrogen infrastructure initiatives like the one in the UK that saw the opening of the first public hydrogen refueling station at Birmingham University, to be followed by three more in London. He notes they will be supplied by hydrogen derived from natural gas, which still emits CO2 and is a finite resource. He then tackles the issue of creating it from electrolyzed water and makes some sobering comparisons.
