Solar Power. Wind Power. Hydrogen driven Lexus LFA-h beats gasoline version in terms of power. Considering hydrogen is the most plentiful element in the universe, it’s strange that our technology doesn’t optimize on its potential. Of course, hydrogen-powered cars do exist but they haven’t made it to the top choice of automobiles yet. This hydrogen-driven car is one powerful automobile, more powerful than even the gasoline model.

Whither hydrogen?

Environmental Economics

city will have a fleet (more than 10) of public vehicles--buses, or taxis, or garbage collection or police or whatever--powered by hydrogen.    As I see it, the major hurdles with hydrogen powered vehicles are: 1) Developing a fuel cell that will be cheap enough to mass produceand sell.  2) Producing hydrogen.    Initially, hydrogen production will be fossil fuel based.  Cue flashback music.

Bosphorus To Become Center of Hydrogen Energy Production If Second Canal Is Built

Green Prophet

But authorities at Turkey’s center for hydrogen energy technology see a silver lining: the canal could enable Turkey to become one of the world’s most important producers of hydrogen energy. And that would free up the strait for hydrogen energy projects that Turkey has been waiting years to realize. By electrolyzing the seawater in the Bosphorus, the turbine would produce hydrogen, which would be stored under heavy pressure.

What is hydrogen?

Eco Friendly Daily

Not only is Hydrogen one of the simplest elements known to man (each hydrogen atom has only one proton); it is also the most plentiful gas in the universe, especially if you consider that stars are primarily made-up of hydrogen. Yes, this would infer that sun is hydrogen, inclusive of helium, which through a process of fusion, gives us radiant (and solar) energy. So given the abundance of hydrogen, why haven’t we capitalized more on it as a source of fuel?

The Limitation of Hydrogen Car Conversion Kits

Eco Friendly Daily

Oil has powered the world for more than a century but it has gifted us soot, smog and lung cancer. On that list is an abundant element – Hydrogen. Hydrogen though is not available in its elemental state on Earth. Hydrogen in fossil fuels reacts with oxygen in the atmosphere to release chemical energy. This is the first hurdle of hydrogen-as-a-fuel systems. To use hydrogen as a fuel, energy is required to free hydrogen into its elemental state.

Hydrogen. Hydrogen’s becoming one of the most promising forms of alternative fuel on the market today. It can be used to power fuel cell vehicles as well as hydrogen-specific cars. In a hydrogen-powered fuel cell car, the fuel cell is used to create its own electricity rather than relying on batteries. The difference is that hydrogen cars produce water vapour as a by-product of combustion, rather than carbon dioxide.

Future Perfect: Producing hydrogen fuel from wastewater

EcoFriend

We have been listening about the green potentials of hydrogen based energy technology for quite some time now. Reason for this is the fact that hydrogen is an energy carrier, which doesn’t occur naturally. And, the artificial production of hydrogen faces huge technological and cost based challenges. It has been shown that hydrogen could be produced from wastewater through new carbon neutral processes. The hydrogen can then be used in fuel cells.
