Hydrogen is not automatically climate-friendly. The production of the alternative energy carrier requires the use of energy. If this comes from conventional energy sources such as natural gas or coal, the hydrogen produced in this way is no longer "green" either. In order to produce and use hydrogen in a climate-neutral manner, electrolysis—the splitting of water into acid and hydrogen—must be at the beginning of its value chain, using electricity from renewable sources such as wind or solar power.
Pepperl+Fuchs offers numerous components that optimize the energy yield in wind and solar power plants, for example, and therefore ensure maximum efficiency.
