Hydrogen is the most common element in existence, although pure hydrogen (H2) is not naturally accessible as it is an odourless, tasteless, and colourless gas which is far lighter than air at normal temperatures. It does, however, have several crucial traits which give it valuable applications.
This article, written by IPFA Member Addleshaw Goddard, is part one of their series ‘The Future of Hydrogen’. In part one, we provide an introduction to hydrogen, provide a summary of its key uses and discuss some of the burgeoning opportunities. Later on in this series, we shall discuss the future of hydrogen in the Middle East and regional opportunities, as well as what the regulatory landscape might look like, and how hydrogen may impact the energy transition.
