7. Will Green Hydrogen replace solar energy and wind power?
The answer is negative, for two main reasons. First of all, solar energy and wind energy are ideal for use in homes, commerce, health, education, etc. But above all they are necessary during the green hydrogen production process that is carried out through electrolysis.
Solar energy and wind energy are not suitable for supplying electricity to heavy industries such as steel mills, chemical industry, space industry, large construction sites, shipping and aviation, which operate with high energy consumption. For these mega industries, green hydrogen is the most suitable sustainable fuel.
In summary, green hydrogen does not compete with solar or wind energy, but in the near future it will be able to do so with oil, natural gas and coal. For all this, the three clean energy sources will play a crucial role in the decarbonization of the planet in the next years.
