Hydrogen supply chain and production technology

  • Nguyen Thi Lan Oanh Vietnam Petroleum Institute
Keywords: Hydrogen, production technology, supply chain


Hydrogen is forecasted as an energy solution for the future thanks to its advantages of cleanliness, abundance and high energy conversion efficiency. The paper briefly introduces the hydrogen supply chain, hydrogen production technologies prevailing or expected in the future, as well as challenges that need to be addressed for a successful transition to a hydrogen-based economy.
