Abstract: This paper investigates the role of green hydrogen energy system in reducing petroleum-based global unrest. For this purpose, in terms of the policy parameters, the followings are discussed: 1) the main factors accelerating petroleum-based global energy imbalance and the negative effects resulting from the petroleum-based global unrest, 2) possible advantages of green hydrogen energy system, 3) the key driving forces and their roles for green hydrogen-based global stability, 4) qualitative evaluation of the effects of petroleum and green hydrogen consumption on some global issues. Consequently, it can be said that green hydrogen energy system will be a key tool to minimise petroleum-based global unrest and to improve the green hydrogen-based global stability. Thus, it is suggested that green hydrogen energy system should be gradually encouraged by governmental bodies and other authorities for improving and ensuring the green hydrogen-based global stability and sustainability.

Keywords: green hydrogen; hydrogen utilisation; petroleum consumption; hydrogen energy systems; global stability; global unrest; sustainability; sustainable development.
