Hydrogen has a vital role in the global energy transition

Green hydrogen is produced by the electrolysis of water using renewable electricity. The global hydrogen capacity increased to 26GW in 2021. The world needs almost 1000 GW by 2050 to meet the demand forecasts. And that’s just for the green hydrogen which will be 75% of global production by 2050.

Batteries are crucial for the climate plan of Joe Biden

Joe Biden’s dream is to have a green electric grid by 2035, with batteries backing up vast fields of solar panels and wind turbines and other carbon-free wind sources. It will only be possible to switch to carbon-free cars and power grids if there’s a huge expansion in storage capacity for electricity.
