Hydrogen Round Trip Efficiency

Chao Zheng


The hydrogen economy is a glimpse into the future economic structure of energy. Hydrogen can be used as a power medium, and a typical way of using hydrogen is the round trip, defined as a process in which electricity becomes hydrogen and then returns to electricity form. The purpose of this paper is to briefly describe hydrogen round trip efficiency from production to releasing and find out the optimistic circumstances.
