…Hydrogen: Tomorrow’s Fuel of Choice?… Hydrogen is widely abundant, but mostly unavailable. Locked together with other atoms to form a multitude of substances, such as water, hydrogen must be separated from the compound it’s married to. This is the first Continue reading Hydrogen: Tomorrow’s Fuel of Choice?
…Fusion Power… Generating electricity from fusion rather than fission of atoms has been a dream ever since the first hydrogen bomb was exploded. What was originally seen as an easily solvable scientific problem, i.e., how to control the plasma, has Continue reading Fusion Power
The Tesla has received all the publicity, but there is another zero emissions vehicle available, the Toyota FuelCell Vehicle (FCV), the Mirai. The Mirai has an MRSP of $57,500, which is less than the Tesla’s 70D. (Tesla advertises a price Continue reading The Race is On
A book published in 2002 predicted that a hydrogen economy would redistribute power around the earth. Its title included the headline: “When there is no more oil.” The book, The Hydrogen Economy, was much ado about nothing. Aside from the Continue reading Another Look At Hydrogen
