The benefits of electrochemistry and hydrogen economy are discussed. The vision of the widespread production, storage, distribution and use of hydrogen as an energy carrier is termed as the hydrogen economy. Hydrogen can provide the energy storage for intermittent renewables like photovoltaics, wind and can be utilized as a transportation fuel. Hydrogen can also be made from coal in a gasification process where the coal is reacted with steam. The research budgets for hydrogen and fuel cell related R&D are growing, with the US Department of Energy (DOE) funding for hydrogen and fuel cells increasing.
