Disadvantages and dangers of Hydrogen power:

By Luis
Although Hydrogen may seem the safest choice in renewable energy at first, it can cause serious physical and environmental harm if mistreated. Hydrogen is extremely combustible and will explode and/or catch fire when heated. Also, steam reforming, ( a process of separating hydrogen from methane) the most widely used way to separate hydrogen, causes greenhouse gases which are a leading cause of global warming. Electrolysis, another form of separating hydrogen which gives off zero emissions, but the only problem with it is that electrolysis is extremely expensive. Also, so far, we have not been able to find a way, cheaply, of extracting hydrogen without using fossil fuels either. Storing of the hydrogen would also prove a challenge too, since it is extremely hard to distribute and store the hydrogen without it dissipating. There is also no existing infrastructure to distribute the hydrogen either. With some new ideas and a bit of work, we will soon be able to use hydrogen power safely and efficiently.
