The answer to our ongoing energy crisis lies in the abundant renewable energy and water that surrounds us.
Renewable Hydrogen (RH₂) is a sustainable form of hydrogen made by using electricity derived from sources including solar and wind power. With Renewable Hydrogen, energy can be generated, stored, and used locally, allowing for democratic and peaceful use.
However, in order to realize a Renewable Hydrogen based society, there must be local community engagement, political will, and technological innovation.
This short book, entitled Renewable Hydrogen, outlines the basics regarding RH₂, and highlights compelling case studies from around the world with the aim of accelerating social movements towards an energy shift.
The book has been edited to make information — distilled from lectures, publicly available sources, and interviews — both informative and easy to read. Renewable Hydrogen appeals to people hearing about RH₂ for the first time, as well as those who are already familiar and looking to deepen their understanding of the technology and the philosophy behind this movement.
