Currently, the world's energy needs rely heavily on fossil fuels, specifically coal, oil, and natural gas. Fossil fuels endanger the earth's ecology and biological systems. Using these fuels raises the CO2 concentration of the atmosphere, causing global warming and unfavourable climate shifts. Furthermore, these are finite sources of energy that will ultimately run out. There is a strong desire to locate and use renewable energy resources to replace fossil fuels as soon as possible since they are projected to have no environmental effect and guarantee energy security. One of the most sought fuels capable of replacing dwindling hydrocarbons is hydrogen. In this overview, we emphasise the current state of energy consumption, recent breakthroughs in renewable energy, and the potential of hydrogen as a future fuel. It reviews various energy systems and focuses primarily on technologies and their dependability for current and future hydrogen generation.

    Abstract Determining the adsorption of shale gas on complex surfaces remains a challenge in molecular simulation studies. Difficulties essentially stem from the need to create a realistic shale structure model in terms of mineral heterogeneity and multiplicity. Moreover, precise characterization of the competitive adsorption of hydrogen and methane in shale generally requires the experimental determination of the related adsorptive capacity. In this study, the adsorption of adsorbates, methane (CH4), and hydrogen (H2) on heterogeneous shale surface models of Kaolinite, Orthoclase, Muscovite, Mica, C60, and Butane has been simulated in the frame of a molecular dynamic’s numerical technique. The results show that… More >
