With scientist developing a ceramic membrane that makes hydrogen from methane -- 87% of natural gas is methane -- we don’t need to worry about a hydrogen infrastructure anymore; the gas lines are already there. Indeed, the new membrane makes the hydrogen in compressed form -- and makes electricity as well.

"Our investigations show that it is possible to generate compressed hydrogen in just one step with high efficiency from electricity and methane gas or biogas and, simultaneously, isolate the CO2 and not release it into the atmosphere. Our method allows for the hydrogen to be produced at high pressure in a distributed manner, which means it could be produced in petrol stations, residential areas, garages or farms. By using electricity from renewable sources, our system allows us to generate hydrogen with a very low carbon footprint. We can also store the leftover renewable energy in the form of compressed hydrogen for a later use when the electrical demand is higher, or as fuel for vehicles." -- Manuel Serra
