Green hydrogen, unlike solar and wind, is combustible, and it burns at high temperatures without leaving behind any greenhouse gases — just water vapor. “Replacing the fossil fuels now used in furnaces that reach 1,500 degrees Celsius (2,732 degrees Fahrenheit) with hydrogen gas could make a big dent in the 20% of global carbon dioxide emissions that now come from industry,” Bloomberg Green wrote in a recent report titled “Why Hydrogen Is the Hottest Thing in Green Energy.” And greening the steel industry isn’t the only argument for green hydrogen. Bringing us back full circle, hydrogen can also store energy and could be an integral part of the future energy storage industry, allowing wind and solar to be scaled up without relying on lithium-ion batteries, which rely on finite rare earth minerals and metals. Hydrogen, meanwhile, is a truly renewable resource and green energy storage option.

When Questor tipped Ceres Power, the hydrogen energy company, in late January it coincided to the day with the shares’ peak, in recent years at least, of £15.88. Since then it has been downhill all the way to last night’s close of 969p – a fall of almost 40pc. The company has added another string to its bow: it is developing an electrolysis product. Electrolysis is the use of electricity to break water down into hydrogen and oxygen. This is the precise reverse of what fuel cells, Ceres’s original product, do and an electrolysing cell is in essence the same as a fuel cell, although the design is modified in minor ways.
