5. In the context of recently proposed National Hydrogen Energy Mission, analyse the prospects for hydrogen as an energy carrier. (250 words)
Why the question:
The article explains pros and cons of hydrogen as an alternative fuel. Thus the context of the question.
Key Demand of the question:
One must analyse the prospects for hydrogen as an energy carrier.
Analyze – When asked to analyse, you have to examine methodically the structure or nature of the topic by separating it into component parts and present them as a whole in a summary.
Structure of the answer:
Hydrogen is expected to play a key role as an energy carrier in future.
Start by explaining what is a hydrogen fuel; Hydrogen is the lightest and first element on the periodic table. Since the weight of hydrogen is less than air, it rises in the atmosphere and is therefore rarely found in its pure form, H2.
Explain the energy scenario in the country. Discuss the pros and cons of hydrogen fuel.
Highlight the coming of National Hydrogen Energy Mission, its ambition, mission and significance.
Conclude with need for recognising hydrogen as a potential fuel.
