Hydrogen is the renewable energy source to watch in 2021


Author: Crystal Wilson

Hydrogen is the simplest and most abundant element in the universe. It is an efficient, non-polluting, renewable fuel.  It is no wonder why hydrogen is experiencing a global resurgence and has been identified as the clean energy source that could help bring the world to net-zero emissions in the coming decades.

Emerging hydrogen technologies require the storage and the use of hydrogen at high pressures.  This is where Sauer Compressors USA comes in.  We offer a variety of customized solutions for your hydrogen compression applications.
