Exclusive use of solar and co-generated energy to transform Indigenous Resources and create even more energy capacity, all the while sequestering CO2, make it a powerhouse to tackle the challenges of Climate Change mitigation.
Using green hydrogen as the energy vector is certainly one of the most ambitious means for a less polluting future through spot-on, clean and efficient technologies, because combustion of hydrogen typically liberates only water and releases 3 times more energy than gasoline. Besides, if the hydrogen has been produced through renewable sources with no fossil CO2 emission, we could then speak of an entirely fossil CO2-free energy production. However, this idea seems to be have a long way to realization. SMO Solar Process® is a gamechanging innovative solution to frogleap and shorten the time needed to reach green hydrogen goal.
why is it not inherently green?
The most economical sources of hydrogen production are still natural gas and coal, but these processes are also liberating large quantities of CO2. Production of green hydrogen through electrolysis remains quite costly, because producing all of today’s dedicated hydrogen output from electrolysis would result in a global electricity demand of 3600 TWh, which is more than the total annual electricity generation of the European Union . So, production cost dictates the accessibility to green hydrogen. And Knowing that only 20 % of European Union needs in energy (all sources combined) are currently met by electricity and that only 7% of it is produced from renewable energy sources, an alternative method not utilizing electricity to produce green hydrogen could be a much needed solution.
Coupling Hydrogen production to Carbon Capture
Hydrogen deployment has had a few false starts in the past. However, technological innovation today can support and have the capacity to build global clean energy industries. Coupling hydrogen production from renewable sources with Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) technologies could help neutralize byproduct CO2 emissions and lead to that CO2-free energy production.
