FUN FACT

What is the benefit of Green Hydrogen?

Green Hydrogen enables the energy from renewable sources to be stored as hydrogen gas which can then be used later.  Renewables such as wind or solar energy are dependent on environmental factors, by using these renewable energy sources to produce Hydrogen gas when they are available, the green Hydrogen can be stored in tanks and then is available regardless of the weather.
