What is hydrogen?
It is a colourless, odourless gas and its compounds can be found everywhere – even inside the human body where it works to keep us hydrated.
Without it, there would be no life on earth.
But that’s not the only reason it is so special and exciting in equal measure.
Hydrogen can do everything natural gas can, but its only emission is water, not CO2.
It can heat your home, cook your food and help you to get from A to B.
For decades, NASA has relied upon hydrogen as rocket fuel to deliver crews and cargo safely into space and used hydrogen fuel cells to generate electricity in its space capsules.
The water, which is produced by the fuel cells, is so pure that the astronauts drink it.
But it can also be used by energy-intensive heavy industries.
Like any fuel it has to be handled responsibly in systems specifically designed to keep it safe in use.
It is the ultimate in clean, sustainable power. It is produced from water and it returns to water.
It has the power to make a huge difference cutting emissions of CO2 to halt the effects of further climate change.
It really is the fuel of the future.
