Green cars-American DOE funds more hydrogen fuel cell research with $4.5m investment

Autoblog (blog)

The US Department of Energy (DOE) is continuing to show support for next-gen fuel cell systems.

Green cars-Hydrogen cells the way forward

This form of green fuel (hydrogen) is in my opinion the way forward into the world without fossil fuels, to run our vehicles on.

American DOE funding more Hydrogen fuel cell technology

The American DOE are providing $4.5 million investment into this new technology, and Universities are now starting to come up with new methods of splitting water, See my recent post…https://www.pellonautocentre.com/?p=7009

The American DOE are particularly keen to invest in this new technology, hydrogen Fuel Cell Energy.

Here in the UK we are starting to set up Hydrogen pumps in London and the scheme is expected to roll out across the UK the following year, with two of the major petrol retailer supermarkets taking part by adding Hydrogen fuel cell on to their forecourts, a huge step forward. it will be a race between the Lithium-Ion battery driven cars and the Hydrogen Fuel Cell driven cars.

I am still waiting for the information about what will be driving our trucks in the future, these are the real “gas gusslers” ?

Hydrogen cells for green cars

The fact that Hydrogen Fuel Coming Closer is great news from the scientists of the University Of Colorado in the USA.

They are working on new ways of splitting Hydrogen from water. The process is very complicated and i must admit that i do not fully understand it myself, however this excellent article in voice of America gives you all the necessary links to read the full story.

The working team at the University of Colorado is been led by Professor Alan Weimer in the chemical and biological engineering department and is said to be very different from any other method tried before and something that other scientists thought impossible and the fact that  Hydrogen Fuel Coming Closer could be a reality.

The scientific team at Colorado has been working on brand new ideas and developments, including a brand new method that will use the power of the Sun to spit water into its original components of Oxygen and Hydrogen and then enabling the use of Hydrogen for the use of a green fuel

CU-Boulder team has devised a solar-thermal system in which sunlight could be concentrated by a vast array of mirrors onto a single point atop a central tower up to several hundred feet tall. The tower would gather heat generated by the mirror system to roughly 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit (1,350 Celsius), then deliver it into a reactor containing chemical compounds known as metal oxides, said CU-Boulder Professor Alan Weimer, research group leader. – See more at: http://www.colorado.edu/news/releases/2013/08/01/cu-boulder-team-develops-new-water-splitting-technique-could-produce#sthash.O7w9Zl23.dpuf
