The article discusses hydrogen cycle-based backup for nuclear power plant (NPP) internal requirements during a blackout. Many big systems accidents which cause forced shutdown of generating sources and loss of power to them happen in world practice. This is an emergency question for NPP since the reactor core must be cooled down.
