WELCOME TO MAINE'S CONVERSATION ABOUT HYDROGEN AND FUEL CELLS

Hydrogen is the lightest element in the universe.  It also holds a great deal of potential energy, which makes it a versatile energy storage medium that can be produced on-site, transported or even mixed with natural gas to create a cleaner energy supply. Let's talk about how we can use hydrogen (H2) to help us meet Maine's energy needs.
