Bond Enthalpy is the enthalpy (essentially the energy) needed to break a bond. All bonds require an input of energy in order to be broken (see bond potential energy graph) and a positive enthalpy signifies that energy must be put in. This is why all bond enthalpies are positive. The bond enthalpy of H2 is the energy required to break the covalent bond between the 2 H atoms.
