Hydrogen has been gaining momentum as a part of a decarbonization strategy, but technology and manufacturing lack scale and government support.
US scientists are experimenting with carbon recycling technologies using solar power to efficiently recycle carbon dioxide to ethanol.
Hydrogen is still underused as a clean energy source partly because of public perception. But it has been proven to be safer than most commonly used fuels.
