Cracking the Hydrogen Egg! How can consumers understand where their Hydrogen has come from?

In a global interconnected system understanding where hydrogen has come from will become incredibly important. The temptation for some to make hydrogen from coal and release the carbon dioxide into the atmosphere may be too great, however as international trade develops the risk increases. Already some have proposed using blockchain to verify hydrogen provenance and systems are already in production. It is inevitable that a certification scheme will need to be developed otherwise it will not be long before hydrogen generates as much scandal as the carbon it saves. There needs to be a recognition that hydrogen is not perfectly green. Hydrogen along its journey adds to global global warming and carbon, capture and storage is not perfect. Consumers need to have the information they need to understand. There may be 11 billion eggs eaten in the UK each year but with a strong communication system it is possible for consumers to understand what they are buying. A hydrogen carbon labelling system is needed to understand the energy supply as well.
