hydrogen energy could help address many concerns facing our nation
and our world. We believe hydrogen can contribute to resolving
these issues for these reasons:
- Hydrogen can be made from a variety of domestic feedstocks like
water, biomass, coal and natural gas.
- Hydrogen is non-toxic, non-poisonous and will not contribute
to groundwater pollution. It does not create "fumes"
or other harmful emissions; in fact, using hydrogen in fuel cells
produces only electricity and pure water.
- Hydrogen is a key enabler for the development and more widespread
implementation of renewable energy technologies, resulting in
cleaner and more efficient products in the marketplace.
Fifty million tons of hydrogen are produced each year worldwide,
with nine million tons being consumed in the U.S. The challenge
is to bring hydrogen into the everyday lives of customers as they
begin to use hydrogen-powered vehicles and other applications.
