Challenges and technological solutions on green hydrogen
<![CDATA[Green hydrogen is produced through electrolysis, a process that separates water into hydrogen and oxygen, using electricity generated from renewable sources. Today it represents a very low percentage of the world's hydrogen production. However, the decreasing costs of both renewable electricity - on which much of hydrogen production is based - and electrolysis technology suggest that green hydrogen is going to be the most attractive investment in clean energy it means. Being one of the biggest issues on which the great world industry is putting its focus for the short and medium term, green hydrogen faces a series of challenges and technological solutions to which it is convenient to spend some time to better understand this novelty. reality.
Challenges facing green hydrogenAlthough green hydrogen is gaining ground in all industries, it still has several challenges to face and which should be known.
- Profitability limited by poor design knowledge
- Limited skilled labor and high operating costs
- Large energy losses
- About the costs of green hydrogen
Technological solutionsBetween increased investments, institutional support, engineering development and worker qualification, digital technology is key to accelerating the transition to green hydrogen, especially Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT), a combination of artificial intelligence and Internet of Things technology that enables optimization and automation of systems through improved data management and analysis. The following are four areas where digital technology could accelerate the green hydrogen transition.
- Digital twins
- Monitoring and control
- Advanced analytics
- Certificates of origin
