Experiments with hydrogen energy, begun a century ago, have shown its viability, despite all the difficulties and problems of this technology. This was discussed in
Opponents of hydrogen energy will object that it has more disadvantages than advantages, and as an energy resource it is not suitable. Well, they are partly right.
Today’s profitability of hydrogen energy production has a coefficient significantly less than one. This means that we expend more energy when producing hydrogen than we get when using it. It is expressed in EROEI.
Hydrogen energy (hydrogen production, storage and use)
In 2010, the first commercial hydrogen power plant was built by Enel in Porto Marghera, an industrial suburb of Venice. And as the experience of its operation has shown, such a concept is unjustified even from the point of view of ecology.
The cost of electricity was
Nitric oxide is especially toxic and is one of the
The combination of a solar power plant with storage units with a total capacity of 580 kWh turns solar energy into a stable source of electricity, enhancing the flexibility and sustainability of the grid. As a result, the microgrid is able to supply clean energy
This implementation can already be conditionally attributed to pure hydrogen energy.
In part, the problem of hydrogen storage was solved. This problem is effectively solved in the gaseous in liquid form of hydrogen storage. Mainly because the entire infrastructure is similar to gas (
There are more and more public transport vehicles in the world, as well as mass-produced vehicles that use hydrogen as a fuel.
Even in our oil and gas Russia in 2019, a prototype of a hydrogen tram was launched, the tests of which have already shown the viability of using hydrogen technologies in large metropolitan areas of our country.
Japan, and then Germany, finally decided on the development of hydrogen energy in their countries.
According to the recently published strategy for the development of hydrogen energy in Germany, the use of hydrogen will be introduced everywhere: transport, metallurgy, petrochemical industry and other industries. The long-term goal of the new energy strategy is to create that very hydrogen economy.
As everyone knows, Germany is the ambassador and locomotive of the entire economy of the European Union. And their energy strategies always apply to the entire eurozone (as an example: the concept of using renewable energy sources adopted in 2000 and expanded in 2010). And as we all see, alternative energy is actively developing throughout the European Union, despite its many shortcomings.
Therefore, from June 10, 2020, hydrogen energy and the hydrogen economy are no longer some abstract alternative that has no prospects, but a real and demanded sector of the economy, which will determine the future of the entire energy sector of the European Union and most of the world economy, if not the entire world economy. …
«Green» fans of alternative energy are already unanimously predicting the economic collapse of Russia, with its oil and gas reserves. But as we have found out a long time ago (the Achilles heel of alternative energy), such fanatics understand nothing about alternative energy, and even more so in the hydrogen economy. Namely, the export potential of hydrogen for our Russia may be even more profitable than the export of natural gas!
