The world is shifting from a fossil fuel-backed economy toward renewable and clean sources. In this verse of transition, green hydrogen can be a promising and efficient alternative source of energy. Technological development achieved so far in the value chain- production, storage, and end-use of hydrogen show a shining future. The large-scale investment, national and international policies, and determination of all countries for zero carbon footprints would make green hydrogen-derived fuel, a leading fuel source in the world’s energy sector. Moreover, In the Nepalese context abundant possibility of hydroelectricity and the availability of glacier-feed river water makes Nepal an economically competitive place for the production and export of green hydrogen in the world.
