The future is clean energy, or so the International Energy Agency (IEA) hopes. The autonomous, Paris-based intergovernmental organization set a goal of a net-zero economy by 2050, meaning that all greenhouse gasses produced by human activity will be negated through reduced emissions and other activities that absorb carbon dioxide.

If there's one thing investors love, it's investing in the future today. And one way to invest in the future of clean energy is hydrogen stocks, which are enjoying increasing attention of late.
