Why hydrogen?

Why hydrogen ?

The energy transition is a necessity to address environmental, economic and societal challenges such as the depletion of natural resources, global warming, inequalities between countries, air pollution and impacts on public health.

The main points to consider are:

1. Current energy models rely primarily on fossil fuels, leading to major problems including pollution, global warming and the increasing scarcity of these resources.

2. The energy transition aims to gradually replace fossil fuels with renewable energies, such as solar, wind and hydropower..

3. The objectives of the energy transition include the preservation of natural resources, the reduction of CO2 emissions, the improvement of air quality, the energy autonomy of territories, the stimulation of local economic growth and the creation collaborative projects.

4. The Paris Agreement, signed in 2015, is an international convention which aims to limit global warming by relying on renewable energies.

5. Hydrogen is presented as a primary solution  in the energy transition due to its ability to store renewable electricity and use it in various sectors such as industry, mobility and energy.

6. Green hydrogen (totally carbon-free), produced by electrolysis of water from renewable electricity, is considered a key element of this transition.

7. Green hydrogen is presented as an essential complement to renewable energy, offering benefits such as decarbonization of the economy and energy performance and efficiency in transport.

All these points highlight the importance of the energy transition towards renewable energy sources, with a particular emphasis on the key role of hydrogen in this transition.
