Hydrogen energy

Hydrogen can be produced from many sources. Coupled with a fuel cell, it makes it possible to produce electricity whose only by-product is water.

Today, fossil energies represent more than 80% of the world’s total energy consumption, with transportation 95% dependent on oil. While reserves are decreasing, global demand is steadily rising due to the emergence of the developing economies.

The combustion of these fossil energies generates CO2, a greenhouse gas that is considered to be the main cause of global warming.

In the light of these facts, one of the biggest challenges facing society today is to ensure that everyone has access to the energy he or she needs while also respecting and preserving the natural environment. Hydrogen is one of the solutions to this major problem.

Hydrogen can be produced from many sources. By using it, we can diversify the energy mix at our disposal and overcome our dependency on fossil resources whose reserves are finite and geographically concentrated. Used in fuel cells, hydrogen produces clean and quiet energy whose only by-product is water.

The automobile is clearly one of the most promising potential fields of application for hydrogen energy. Hydrogen is the fuel of choice for propelling cars equipped with an electric engine and that produce their own electricity onboard.
