Hydrogen as an energy vector

• Hydrogen has an energy content three times higher than diesel and natural gas.

• Hydrogen is not a source of energy, but is considered an energy vector, that is, a substance or device that stores energy and that can later be used.

• Hydrogen is a good energy vector, as it can be produced from several abundant precursors, such as natural gas, coal, water and renewable energy sources.

• The use of hydrogen in fuel cells, especially in the mobility sector, will make it possible to diversify energy supply in the future, with greater use of national resources, and thus reduce dependence on oil imports.
