I was a utility lobbyist for 5-years. I learned a lot about energy which at its base is a tool to help people get things done.
One of the more exciting developments in energy in the last few years is hydrogen fuel cells. It ticks several boxes necessary to address climate change. It can be safely produced, stored, and transported around the State. It has drawn billions of investment dollars in Europe, Australia, and Asia. Closer to home both President Biden and Governor Newsom have committed billions of dollars to the technology.
But what is Green Hydrogen?
Hydrogen is one of the most abundant elements in the Universe. In order for it to be used as a useful fuel, it has to be separated which is an energy-intensive process. When that energy is produced using renewable electricity we call it green hydrogen.
