he U.S. could move toward energy independence
and a clean energy future by building a hydrogen
Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical element known
to exist in the universe. With an atomic weight of 1.008, it
also is the lightest known element and can be overlooked easily, like other small matter. But don’t underestimate its worth.
Many everyday processes involve hydrogen.
Predominantly present in water, hydrogen appears in
foods and beverages, as well as industrial processes such as oil
re;ning and welding applications.
Right now, fossil fuels primarily drive the U.S. energy sector.
But hydrogen is getting serious examination as an alternative
It’s a clean energy carrier that produces zero harmful emissions when used in conjunction with a fuel cell.
Hydrogen fuel cells can power anything from a home to
a car to entire cities, including municipal buildings, public
transit and emergency off-grid solutions. Hydrogen fuel
cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) hold signi;cant potential to
