Green hydrogen, renewable energy, decarbonization, water electrolysis, energy transition


The transition to sustainable and low-carbon energy sources has become a pressing global priority due to the escalating concerns surrounding climate change and the depletion of finite fossil fuel reserves. Green hydrogen, produced through the process of water electrolysis using renewable energy sources, has emerged as a promising solution to decarbonize various sectors, such as transportation, industry, and power generation. This critical analysis aims to explore the mechanisms of green hydrogen energy, its potential benefits, and the challenges associated with its widespread adoption. Through an examination of the current state of green hydrogen technology, policy frameworks, and economic considerations, this analysis contributes to a comprehensive understanding of the role that green hydrogen can play in shaping a sustainable energy future.
