Many countries worldwide face energy problems. There’s environmental damage from CO² emissions and a gap between the energy needs of growing populations and fossil fuel supply limits. H2One™ is a new all-in-one energy supply system that uses renewable energy to make hydrogen and stores it to make electricity and hot water. When H2One™ is used to convert energy to hydrogen and store it, renewable energy systems can eliminate erratic output, due to weather and operate steadily. And, it’s a portable system that can be used in areas with limited infrastructure. H2One™ hints at a bright future as an icon for a green hydrogen energy society.
