Abstract: A new vision of the future human civilisation, hydrogen civilisation (HyCi) is generalised. At this rigorous, severe historical period human kind still has a real possibility to save the biosphere and make living out of humanity a possible and real process. The above objective can be achieved only by advantageous all-planetary work along the direction of the ecologically clean and economically sustainable vector |hydrogen energy → hydrogen economy → HyCi|. The HyCi concept includes three constituent, mutually conditioned parts: industrial-ecological, humanitarian-cultural and geopolitical-international legislative ones. This paper presents a comprehensive and analysed theoretical and humanitarian-cultural groundwork of the transition. The legislative-economic mechanism of the transition to HyCi is formulated, and the way to a hydrogen market economy – the economic basis of the HyCi – is indicated and discussed.
Keywords: hydrogen energy; hydrogen economy; hydrogen civilisation; HyCi.
