Being the simplest and most abundant element in the entire universe, harnessing the power of Hydrogen holds the potential to change our civilization to Type III. Although, the Fuel Cell technology being invented in 1838 and first commercial use following the invention of the hydrogen-oxygen fuel cell in 1932, its commercial application was not observed at ground levels.  Nepal being second richest country in Hydropower in entire world, the strategic blend of Hydrogen in National Development, will mitigate the energy (fuel) problem the country and contribute to the GDP of the country.
