A coalition of major oil & gas, power, automotive, fuel cell, and hydrogen companies have developed and released the full new report, a “Road Map to a US Hydrogen Economy.” The Road Map stresses the versatility of hydrogen as an enabler of the renewable energy system; an energy vector that can be transported and stored; and a fuel for the transportation sector, heating of buildings and providing heat and feedstock to industry.

It can reduce both carbon and local emissions, increase energy security and strengthen the economy, as well as support the deployment of renewable power generation such as wind, solar, nuclear and hydro.

1. Not this shit again!

The vast majority of the hydrogen on the market is made by splitting it off carbon atoms using steam reformation and water-gas shift reactions.

It is not feasible to make it out of water EVEN IF THE ELECTRICITY YOU USE IS COMPLETELY FREE! It requires so much electricity to split water, you're better off putting the electricity into batteries. Hydrogen isn't even a good energy storage method because you throw away a lot of energy making it.
