Hydrogen – Is It the Best Option for Clean Energy?

Hydrogen – The Pros and Cons


  • You can heat a home with it
  • Drive your car with it
  • The only bi-product of burning it is water and energy
  • No heavy batteries needed so it can be used in trucks and buses
  • No lengthy charging time and distance issues for vehicles
  • If powered by green energy the process is zero carbon


  • Expensive to produce cleanly via electrolysis
  • Lack of infrastructure – manufacturers, pipelines, and producers
  • Lacks Government legislation and investment in the UK



Compared to other countries, Britain is lagging behind in the hydrogen revolution. Germany has invested heavily and has 200 operational filling stations for hydrogen powered cars – Britain has only a handful.

Car manufacturers are leading the way, with several successfully launching hydrogen powered cars which are driving around. Vehicles currently form the most advanced part of the hydrogen energy revolution.

However, with the global need for reducing carbon, it is likely that the positive potential of hydrogen will have a powerful role to play in the future of clean, green energy.
