Although fossils are the main energy source for many countries, some alternative energy sources have been created to generate electricity. This new energy source would be sustainable and promising energy sources and change the current energy economy to a sustainable economy, which is hydrogen economy. Hydrogen is the most efficient fuel and it is about 26% more efficient than fossil fuels. On the other hand it is not a primary energy source, but a secondary energy source or an energy carrier. Actually, it is the cleanest energy carrier, since it does not produce greenhouse gases, or chemicals which deplete the ozone layer. In addition, it is the most cost-effective fuel, when its higher efficiency and the environmental damage caused by fossil fuels are considered. In this study, hydrogen delivery, storage, conversion and utilization methods are investigated for sustainable development strategy.
