Hyundai presented two big ideas this week. The first was the company’s plan to use excess energy from renewable sources to power large-scale electrolysis plants to make hydrogen.

Hyundai — like all other companies looking at hydrogen — is still vague on how it will contain the smallest molecule, but Hyundai’s executive VP and head of its Fuel Cell Centre, Saehoon Kim, said its hydrogen will be cleaner and cheaper than “grey hydrogen”.

Grey hydrogen is made by burning coal, a process that requires more electricity than what the hydrogen can generate, plus large quantities of toxic and greenhouse gases are by-products.
