Natural hydrogen, also known as white or gold hydrogen, produced through natural processes deep underground, is emerging as a lesser-known but potentially game-changing source of energy. Unlike conventional methods of hydrogen production, natural hydrogen has very low emissions, could replace fossil fuels, and costs a fraction of green hydrogen production costs. Research is underway to explore its extraction and identify suitable reservoirs. While still in its early stages, the discovery of natural hydrogen opens up new possibilities for achieving decarbonisation goals, although further exploration and technological advancements are needed to fully harness its potential. Only a handful of companies have started working in this space - 45-8 Energy FDE, HyTerra, Gold Hydrogen, 2H Resources, H2EX, and Hydroma, to name a few.
