Speech title "Expanding sustainable energy
by way of hydrogen energy systems"
Abstract-While the world’s energy sources
become less based on fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas,
two energy forms, hydrogen and electricity, are expected to be the
two dominant energy carriers for the provision of end-use energy
services, in what is often referred to as a hydrogen economy.
In particular, as relatively easily accessible fossil fuel supplies
become scarcer or more expensive to harvest and as environmental
concerns, especially climate change and the global warming that
leads to it, expand and become more concerning, hydrogen is likely
to become an increasingly important chemical energy carrier.
The growth for sustainable energy is enhanced through the use of
hydrogen energy systems in which hydrogen is an energy carrier.
The technologies needed for hydrogen energy systems are undergoing
much research and development. For instance, there are many
processes and technologies for producing hydrogen, for the
transport, distribution and storage of hydrogen, and for utilizing
hydrogen as an energy carrier, especially in transportation.
In this presentation, the role of hydrogen as an energy carrier and
hydrogen energy systems, and their economics, are described and
