The author of the scientific article is Anthony Patt, professor at the Swiss Higher Technical School of Zurich. He argued that fossil fuels should be replaced with renewable electricity rather than hydrogen energy.
The scientist explained that hydrogen is an energy carrier, not a source of energy, and can be obtained in three ways. The “gray” hydrogen, which is produced the most, provides carbon dioxide and methane emissions, which, to put it mildly, contradict the idea of u200b u200bprotecting the environment. Blue hydrogen is produced from natural gas, which is also a bad solution in the long run. But “green” hydrogen does not produce direct emissions, but it requires electricity to produce it.
Patt asks why not just use renewable electricity then? The professor believes that the same fuel companies are lobbying for hydrogen energy.
