ROLE OF HYDROGEN IN SOLAR ENERGY UTILIZATION - PROBLEMS AND ASPECTS OF THE HYDROGEN ISSUE
A hydrogen based, clean energy supply concept comprising the production of hydrogen by hydropower, its transportation to Europe and its storage and use in different forms is feasible today and is described in the paper. The economic aspects are treated in a rather concise manner which the author considers sufficient in the actual, not yet industrialized state of the technology. The paper is tailored for didactic use in a Workshop, i.e. it treats the scientific aspects, the thermodynamics of water splitting, rather extensively. It also conveys the message to demonstrate and therewith to start to build now, with existing technology, a clean and abundant energy system which would allow us to prevent rather than to cure environmental or oil shortage mishaps.
