Hydrogen is widely used in the field of energy and power technology, and has many advantages, such as strong thermal conductivity, good combustion performance, cleanness, multiple available forms, recyclability, etc. Hydrogen production by electrolysis of water is widely used as an efficient method to produce hydrogen. This paper introduces three widely used ways and principles of hydrogen production through water electrolysis, and summarizes the current application status of hydrogen production through water electrolysis in various scientific research fields in China. The application of hydrogen production from electrolytic water in new energy, transportation, construction and other fields is analyzed, and the future application of hydrogen production from electrolytic water is prospected.
