Hydrogen (H2) is a gas, and like electricity, it's an energy carrier. Hydrogen doesn't emit any greenhouse gas emissions when it is used. However, hydrogen is also like electricity in that for it to be zero-emitting, it must be produced using clean energy.

Hydrogen will be an essential part of the region's energy mix to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

Hydrogen can do what electricity will struggle to achieve. Hydrogen will help decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors, like industrial processes, heavy transportation, the marine sector and some power generation.

With the increased frequency and severity of storms, it is critical that the region have a diversity of reliable energy sources to meet its needs. Hydrogen can be delivered through existing underground infrastructure that is not affected by weather events.
