Governments and industry organisations are launching a slew of new hydrogen initiatives, strategies, and regulatory frameworks, signaling the start of a hydrogen revolution.
The globe is rapidly pivoting towards new, non-fossil-fuel dependant energy sources in the aftermath of the IPCC Assessment Report 6 and the COP26 global climate summit.

This article summarizes the foundations of hydrogen for the urban water business at this critical juncture, addresses some significant emergent problems, and suggests to questions that should be explored in the years ahead.
