Hydrogen replacing fossil fuels and becoming new source of power

Jack Brouwer, Professor of Engineering at UC Irvine is ecstatic to see the change. “It’s exciting to have this happening in our backyard. It’s exciting also to be one of the first in the world to actually adopt this platform,” he says. Professor Brouwer says green hydrogen can be used to power not only buildings and cars, but also jets, ships, trains and long haul trucks and its emissions won’t harm people or the environment. … “The only emission is water,” he says.
