As the world moves towards carbon neutrality, we will witness the changing colours of energy – from brown, carbon-intensive sources, to green, carbon-neutral sources.
This is critical because the demand for power will continue to grow and, as the world becomes more digitalised, concerns over direct personal exposure to emissions from the use of energy will also continue to grow.
Hydrogen is also seen as another future common form of energy in which hydrogen and electricity, as energy carriers, would be complementary in the energy transition. The challenge is how to produce electricity and hydrogen from as much green renewable energy as possible, as opposed to our current dominant reliance on fossil fuels.
