Fuel cell cars from Toyota, Honda, Hyundai set to debut at auto shows - latimes.com:
We've been waiting for decades (50 years?) for a fuel cell car.
It looks like Toyota will come out fist with a Fuel Cell car next year.
The fuel cell being announced this next week are coming from Honda and Hyundai.
Unfortunately, it seems, these will be hydrogen fuel based.
Other versions of Fuel Cell generators use liquid fuels, not straight hydrogen. Without fueling stations for hydrogen the technology is stuck where LP and LNG was 10 years ago before Clean Energy (and others) started putting up liquid natgas stations along the trucking corridors.
Let's see what the announcement(s) bring.

This is a sustainability-oriented blog. Topics pertaining Energy Efficiency (EE), Telecommuting, Sustainable Health/Wellness, etc., but mainly focus on solutions to non-sustainable practices and trying to address means and methods for resolving them. Sustainability is something that we all have to do, sooner or later! (Low politico please!).

Well, here's the results on from the FuelCell vehicles from the auto shows... Some very cool stuff and some very futuristic looking FC vehicles.ReplyDelete
You gotta chuckle about the lines you will see on the topic such as this: "Since the hydrogen isn't burned, there's no pollution..." There is more than one way to get energy from hydrogen (combined with oxygen in the air). Burn it, as in an internal combustion engine. Or a chemical reaction approach such as Fuel Cell. All approaches result in H2O... Water (vapor).

Here's a couple articles: AP in the WashingtonPost. http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/automakers-roll-out-hydrogen-powered-cars-could-be-headed-to-a-driveway-near-you/2013/11/20/642d7156-5247-11e3-9ee6-2580086d8254_story.html
There's a chance you are qualified for a new solar energy program.ReplyDelete
