Clean hydrogen is one of the most hyped solutions to achieving net zero in time to avert climate catastrophe.
While it's true the molecule has a major role to play in decarbonised economies, massive hurdles remain. But Paddy Padmanathan, chief executive of Acwa Power, is a believer.
He says over the next decade, challenges around transport and pricing will rapidly diminish, paving the way for a hydrogen-powered future. He joins co-hosts Mustafa Alrawi and Kelsey Warner this week to explain how the universe's most abundant element works, and why it's a viable solution to our planet's biggest existential threat.
