The tipping point towards carbon free energy
Hydrogen production with renewable energy through water electrolysis
Pure Hydrogen is only available in small quantities in the earth. Hydrogen can be produced with fossil fuels in a process that emits large quantities of CO2 to the atmosphere. Hydrogen can also be produced through water electrolysis, a process that was invented by two british chemicals in 1800: 2 H2O + electricity = 2 H2 + O2 + heat. Electrical activation between a cathode and an anode creates a chemical reaction. Energy content of water is considerable: 1 liter of water contains the equivalent to 0.4 liter of oil.
Equalizing the cost
of fossil fuels
Green hydrogen can be produced at competitive prices.
Use of existing oil and gas infrastructure
Gas transmission and storage infrastructure, as well as coal and gas turbines, can be adapted and reused.
Satisfying the energy need of the industry 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
Energy, heat and transport
The chemical industry, the steel manufacturing, energy generation, road and sea transportation, they can all transit to hydrogen.
Energy without carbon emissions, competitive and secure is an imperative
Zero carbon imperative. The arctic melting, the burning of the Amazon forest, the rise of the sea level… There is only one answer: stop fossil fuels now! The European Union has set itself carbon neutrality by 2050.
and for all
The energy trilemma: (1) total decarbonization, (2) secure energy supply (power, heating, transportation…) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, (3) competitiveness for the industry and affordability for users. Fossil fuels meet the lattter two criteria, whilst renewables (solar and wind energy) the former two. They are both dead ends and combining two dead ends doesn’t work.
