The concept of hydrogen economy is strictly connected to the sustainable development strategies. The key issue for the implementation of such a concept consists on the development of efficient technologies for the conversion of renewable energy sources to hydrogen. The paper includes the partial results of project HyRes, which aimed the evaluation of renewable energy sources from the Dobrogea region in order to conceive a distributed energy supply system based on hydrogen energy technologies.
