How do you produce electricity from hydrogen?

First of all, why produce electricity from hydrogen?

Hydrogen is an energy carrier that can be used to store electricity. It provides a way of dealing with the over-production of renewable electricity (solar, wind) at some times and shortfalls at other times.

The Power-to-Gas process can be used to convert the surplus electricity produced from uncontrollable sources (sun, wind) into hydrogen so that it can be stored for use in the future.

Next, the production of electricity from hydrogen is made possible by the use of fuel cells. In a fuel cell, the hydrogen is combined with oxygen in the air to generate an electric current. This production method does not emit any greenhouse gases – just heat and water.
