Our review

In recent news, the UK’s richest man Jim Ratcliffe tied up with Hyundai Motors to manufacture Hydrogen-fueled cars in the UK. China is also pushing ahead with its hydrogen plans. While hydrogen fuel sounds like the next big thing in technology, it’s actually been around for a quite a while. Hydrogen fuel cells have been seen as an intermediate step between polluting fossil fuels and utopian renewable energy. But what is a hydrogen fuel cell? How does it work? And what is being done to make hydrogen happen?

 

Pros:

+ The video looks at the science, the economics, the manufacturing.

+ Hear from scientists and entrepreneurs involved in developing the field.

 

Cons:

– Storing hydrogen is a big obstacle because of its highly combustible nature. The video skims over this part.
