    Green Hydrogen vs. Fossil Fuels:

    Top management consulting experts for Bio-energy, EV, Solar, Green Hydrogen

    • Green hydrogen is made using renewable energy, without greenhouse gas emissions.
    • It is considered significantly better than most combustion technologies, with various fuel cell technologies achieving around 60% efficiency.
    • Green hydrogen is sustainable, and hydrogen safety standards are developed, mature, and effective.

    To be clear, let us look into the differences between Natural Gas and Green Hydrogen:

    CharacteristicNatural GasGreen Hydrogen
    Production ProcessSteam methane reforming (SMR)Electrolysis using renewable energy (e.g., solar, wind, hydro)
    Carbon EmissionsReleases CO2 during combustionZero-carbon dioxide emissions
    ScalabilityLimited by natural gas availabilityHigh scalability with renewable energy expansion
    Long-term SustainabilityModerate to lowHigh
    CostLess expensiveMore expensive
    Air PollutantsGenerates NOx and other pollutantsNo NOx or other air pollutants
    InfrastructureExisting infrastructure for natural gasLimited infrastructure for green hydrogen
    Energy SourceFossil fuelRenewable energy source
    Environmental ImpactContributes to greenhouse gas emissionsZero greenhouse gas emissions
