Hydrogen has the greatest potential to replace fossil fuels in the future, the Pujiang Innovation Forum heard on Friday.
A report on its future development was released at the forum by Yu Zhuosheng, director of the Innovation Center for Smart New Energy Vehicles, Tongji University.
Yu’s report is one of four made by China’s think tanks released at the forum in Shanghai.
The report says energy plays a pivotal role in decarburization and China has said it will play an important part in global decarburization. How to reduce carbon emissions in the energy field is a new requirement for the development of the global energy industry.
Renewable energy is bringing changes for global energy, the report says, but its development is facing an enormous challenge — the large-scale application of renewable energies, whether wind or light, has been greatly restricted due to its instability and non-storability of electricity.
Yu said only 20 percent of electricity made at photovoltaic power stations can access the power grid. The problem of the wasted 80 percent can be solved by hydrogen.
