The advantages of using Hydrogen as opposed to LNG are:

  • Hydrogen combustion does not produce CO2.
  • Hydrogen may be available to ambient temperature, whereas LNG requires vaporization.

The downsides of using Hydrogen are:

  • Hydrogen is harder to handle than LNG.
  • Hydrogen is more explosive than LNG.
  • Hydrogen needs to be produced from another source such as coal, LNG is available as such in the environment.
  • Hydrogen storage requires lot more space, LNG can be stored in smaller amount of space.
