Ørsted aims to invest in ‘green hydrogen’ pilot projects

Orsted and two partners secured funding in August from the British government for a “green hydrogen” project. Hydrogen gas has long been seen as a potential alternative to fossil fuels as it emits water when burned, not CO2, the greenhouse gas emitted by coal, oil and natural gas. But making hydrogen from water by electrolysis, … Continue reading Ørsted aims to invest in ‘green hydrogen’ pilot projects
