Hydrogen is being considered as a synthetic fuel or energy carrier for the post fossil fuel era. It has many properties to commend itself: It compliments the non-conventional primary energy sources and presents them to the consumer in a convenient form; it is relatively inexpensive to produce; it can be converted to various energy forms at the consumer end with higher efficiencies than possible with other fuels; it is renewable; and it is the lightest and cleanest fuel. It can be used in every application where we are using fossil fuels today, including to meet the energy requirements of the residential/commercial sector, such as cooking, water and space heating, cooling and refrigeration, lighting and electricity generation. In all these applications, it is superior to conventional fuels and other synthetic alternatives.
