“When considering what a global energy system on a 1.5°C or 2°C [2.7°F or 3.6°F] pathway will look like by 2050, hydrogen consistently plays a critical role as a low-carbon fuel,” according to a report from Rocky Mountain Institute authored by Thomas Koch Blank and Patrick Molloy.
Equipment as a Service (EaaS) is a relatively new concept similar to the widely used Software as a Service (Saas). SaaS allows customers to use cloud-based software on a subscription basis.
