Hydrogen Utilization in the Electricity Sector: Opportunities, Issues, and Challenges

Tallawarra Power Station. Photo credit: EnergyAustraliaThis whitepaper is a collaboration between researchers from Georgia Tech and the Electric Power Research Institute. It considers where hydrogen might fit within the energy system as it stands today. The US energy system can be divided into three major subsystems: (A) energy sources (natural gas, oil, solar, etc.), (B) carriers and infrastructures for moving energy sources around, and (C) energy consumers. This whitepaper considers issues associated with hydrogen as an energy carrier, particularly its role as a substitute for natural gas.
