Where Does Hydrogen Come From?

Where Does Hydrogen Come From?

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. There are a number of ways to turn it into a fuel so we can make the most of it.

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. There are a number of ways to turn it into a fuel so we can make the most of it.

Hydrogen can be produced from natural gas, coal, biomass and oil. And it can be produced from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, geothermal and hydroelectric power. Hydrogen can even be captured from waste from industrial processes. Hydrogen can also be made locally, at large central plants or in small distributed units at or near the point of use.

Because there are so many ways to make hydrogen, communities can choose to make hydrogen in whichever way makes the most environmental and economic sense for them. Every community, even remote ones, can be energy producers.
