Hydrogen represents a complementary solution to other green gasses and the electrification process.
More importantly, green hydrogen will play a key role in the reduction of emissions within the EU’s decarbonisation strategy.
The goal of the European Green Deal is to achieve zero emissions by 2050.
The plan anticipates that, through the transition to hydrogen, it will be possible to decarbonise entire sectors that currently rely on fossil fuels: from transport, to heavy industry, to the heating of buildings.
The Swiss astronomer and alchemist Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim performed the first experiment to obtain hydrogen in the form of gas (H2).
Chemists William Nicholson and Johann Wilhelm Ritter performed the first experiment designed to achieve water electrolysis.
The first hydrogen vehicle is designed (Hyppomobile).
The first hydrogen generators for heating and cooling are commercially available.

Despite being the most abundant element on Earth, hydrogen in nature is only found bonded to other elements, and it is thereby necessary to “extract” it artificially.
In particular, as a result of an electrolysis process (which separates hydrogen from water) powered by renewable energy, it is possible to obtain the so-called “green hydrogen”.
