The extremely challenging nature of handling hydrogen raises questions about realizing its potential while prioritizing environmental concerns. In this article on PV Magazine, our CEO, Dr. Samer Taha explains how a novel approach at the atomic level may just hold the key to propelling the hydrogen economy forward.


When Nano- Meets Climate Technology

The warmest years since global temperature records were first established, in 1880, have all unfolded since 2010, with the period from 2014 to 2022 standing out as the nine warmest years. Needless to say, climate change is upon us and it is a clarion call for an energy transition.

A combination of energy efficiency, electrification, and renewables can potentially achieve 70% of the emissions mitigation needed to limit the rise in average global temperature by 2050 to 1.5 C above pre-industrial levels.

Hydrogen is expected to contribute 10% of that mitigation. In fact, efficient, cost-effective, and safe storage and transportation of hydrogen could enable its use in place of fossil fuels. There is a catch, however. The exceptionally low density of hydrogen renders existing storage methods costly, challenging, and inefficient.

The convergence of nanotechnology and climate technology, however, presents a transformational opportunity to enable the big transition of the global energy system. (…)
