Renewable energy has been playing a major and increasingly important part in reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) states that cheap electricity from renewable sources could provide 65 percent of the world’s total electricity supply by 2030. Moreover, it stated that such sources can potentially decarbonize 90 percent of the power sector by 2050. Such a massive reduction in carbon emissions can and should play a key role in substantially helping to mitigate climate change and the damage it has and is causing.
Historically, the greatest challenges to the renewable energy generation sector have been the intermittency of energy sources, for example, of the availability of adequate wind and sunlight, exacerbated by the difficulty and cost of safely storing and transporting power so produced over long distances. There are, however, viable solutions to these problems: e.g., renewable electricity (electrons) can be converted and stored in the form of hydrogen (molecules) and transported to the point of use. And that is where H2-Industries´ technology comes into play.
