Sustainably produced hydrogen can make a significant contribution to a sustainable energy supply when used in conjunction with other technologies whether as fuel for mobility, in the chemical industry or in a long-term energy (electricity) storage system. Electrolytic extraction and subsequent use of hydrogen is the central element of the various power to gas concepts. Incorporating hydrogen as the energy carrier is a complex undertaking, so the time period involved will be longer and there is still need for greater research and development in this field.
