Geological research and chemical analysis in Switzerland's Alpine region suggest the presence of natural hydrogen reserves, potentially offering an eco-friendly energy source. Start-ups are investigating the possibility of extracting hydrogen from deep within the Earth. While early findings show promise, it remains uncertain if natural hydrogen can be a cost-effective solution on a global scale. Legal and regulatory changes are also needed before any drilling can commence, with prospects of exploration still several years away. Currently, only FDE in France has discovered natural hydrogen in Europe.
