Linsinger wants to be part of the energy revolution and would like to actively contribute to future generations. Hydrogen production is relatively straightforward. Water breaks down into hydrogen (H2) and oxygen (O2). In this process, electrical energy is converted into chemical energy and stored in hydrogen. Electricity is generated from the hydrogen and air obtained; only water is a product of this conversion. A key element of the energy revolution is green hydrogen, which is produced carbon-free and in an environmentally friendly manner.
