Hydrogen is the fuel of the future, experts say. It does not emit carbon dioxide and can serve the goal of decarbonization as, unlike renewables, it does not depend on the intensity of wind potential and the degree of sunshine. Advent creates fuel cells that convert hydrogen into clean electricity and heat via chemical reactions. With aviation gradually shifting to the use of hydrogen, one of Advent's recent partnerships is with aircraft manufacturer Airbus...
