Hydrogen to Foster the Clean Energy Transition

Article By : Maurizio Di Paolo Emilio

Panasonic discusses the importance of hydrogen technology to foster the clean energy transition and reach the zero-emission objective.

Hydrogen is a very light gas. It tends to bind to other atoms, thus forming more complex molecules. To be used as a fuel, it must be ‘captured’ by chemical processes. Hydrogen is the most widespread chemical element in the universe and could play a significant role in achieving zero net emission and other goals such as wind and geothermal power.

In this video interview with EE Times Europe, Max Fujita, head of European Fuel Cells at Panasonic, discusses the importance of hydrogen technology to foster the clean energy transition.

“Every country is working to increase a portion of renewable energies like solar or wind turbine. But this renewable energy is unstable. Renewable green power cannot supply at all. In order to support the zero-emission goal, our answer is the pure hydrogen fuel cell system,” said Fujita.

He added, “We have experienced more than 200,000 units installation with this technology.”

Many initiatives are turning to hydrogen as another solution to support renewable energy and contribute to a green society. The use of hydrogen could be an important energy carrier in some sectors such as road transport, residential and services.
