  54. Greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere from burning down fossil fuels are a serious threat
  55. to the global environment and climate change \cite{hites2006persistent}. In order to deal with long-term
  56. climate change by reducing reliance on oil, future energy sources should be renewable and non-polluting
  57. \cite{lund2007renewable}. The expansion of renewable resources is limited due to their frequency and their
  58. unpredictable nature. Increase in the distribution of Renewable energy sources and simultaneously adapted
  59. production with demand, practically without the use of energy storage systems is not possible
  60. \cite{hall2008energy, hadjipaschalis2009overview, dell2001energy}. The main challenge for storage systems is
  61. to achieve energy savings as much as needed and when Which needs to be available as soon as possible.
  62. Many studies have led to hydrogen fuel to achieve a clean fuel and a credible solution to replace fossil fuels.
  63. Steam Methane reforming (SMR) is the most common industrial method for the production of hydrogen
  64. \cite{holladay2009overview}, an endothermic reaction with two steps of high and low temperature and finally
  65. a purification step \cite{gallucci2013recent}.

It's just the cite package here, that doesn't work with elsarticle.

If you don't write \usepackage{cite} then the problem doesn't appear.
