Clean hydrogen has the potential to help reduce carbon emissions, especially in sectors that are difficult to decarbonize, such as heavy manufacturing and energy-intensive industries like steel or chemicals. It is also emerging as a key solution for electricity storage, addressing the intermittency issues of wind and solar energy. Currently, however, its primary use is in traditional refining and industrial applications. It is mostly produced using fossil fuels, offering no real and sustainable climate benefits.
