Where is it found?
how does it work to produce energy for individuals or communities?
What are the uses for Hydrogen Power?
What are the products created from using this energy source?
Who uses it?
What are the cost benefits of using Hydrogen?
Benefits- less greenhouse gas emissions ( depending on how hydrogen is produced), less air pollutions (depending on how hydrogen is produced), reduced oil dependance (no need to import oil from foreign countries.
Costs- Hard to contain in cars (hard to make dense to store a lot), Cars are more expensive than regular ones), fuel cells not as durable as combustion engines (more likely to explode if hit), getting hydrogen to customers (need to build hydrogen stations at gas stations)
