Hydrogen can be produced from various primary resources by using different processes. The full benefits of hydrogen production can be obtained when it is produced from renewable energy resources. Among these emerging renewable energy resources, marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) energy systems lower variability in the energy production. Also, more than 50% of the total US population resides near water bodies. In this paper, a brief review of renewable energy-based hydrogen production systems is provided, the emission level of both conventional and renewable energy sources for producing the same amount of hydrogen are compared using GREET model, and research needs for further MHK-based hydrogen production systems are discussed. The results showed the significant emission reductions obtained from renewable-based hydrogen production systems. Moreover, the study showed the potential of producing the same amount of hydrogen with less resource quantity of wave energy compared to that from other renewables such as solar energy.
