To produce clean hydrogen, wind, solar, and nuclear generated electricity can be used in a process called electrolysis, which takes water and splits it into hydrogen and oxygen using an electric current. The resulting hydrogen can be used as fuel and it is extremely clean, which is exactly what we want in an energy carrier.

Earlier I mentioned that hydrogen was either a solid, a liquid or a gas. Do you remember which one it is?

Hydrogen is a gas! That means in Atlantic Canada it can be delivered in our existing natural gas pipelines for space and water heating instead of natural gas. Clean hydrogen can also be stored in large volumes and transported by converting it to green ammonia (a liquid).
