The Hydrogen Economy's Time Is Approaching
Green hydrogen won’t solve all our problems. In the short term, stimulus money is probably best spent on humdrum activities that get less-skilled labor moving, such as insulating houses and installing them with solar panels. In the long term, though, hydrogen offers a way out of our triple crisis of weak post-coronavirus demand, a foundering energy sector, and climate change.
