Proff. R. Ad van Wijk –  

“Why Hydrogen?” 

In 1874 Jules Verne wrote in his book 'The Mysterious Island'. “Yes my friends, I am convinced that water will one day be used as fuel and that hydrogen (…) will be an inexhaustible source of heat and light!" He was a visionary but now gets it right. But why hydrogen and why now, and what role will hydrogen play in a sustainable energy system? Hydrogen, just like electricity, is not an energy source but an energy carrier, but why do we need that energy carrier? In my presentation I will discuss this system role of hydrogen and how hydrogen can be made, transported, stored and used.
