What do you make of the hydrogen hype?
Hydrogen can be mass produced & stored but that's not possible for Electricity.Nations around the world especially Developed ones must invest in:-(1) Nuclear-Energy for Base-Load electricity(2) Green-Hydrogen production & Storage(3) Hydrogen-FCEVsHydrogen-FCEVs may not be used for Ground vehicles but it can be used for Trains, Aircraft & Sea-Ships.
Ballard Power Systems is developing hydrogen powered ships and trains and other things all around the world. An ocean going ship make its own hydrogen. In another video I saw it was stated that the manure from one cow can provide enough hydrogen gas for one year. Can we use the waste from zoos, chicken farms, waste from campgrounds, etc.?
Lol. You do not need a storage tank. Storage is dangerous. On demand cells. Make it when you need it. That's the problem they want to sell the hydrogen gas. I know General Motors, Flied bankruptcy on me after showing them how to create more Hydrogen using a vortex, a blender to pass electrolysis faster in the cell and eliminating storage. What happened? They used it as an asset in bankruptcy procedure. Energy is the way to freedom, but also a way to control the future. What you think? There is also a way to create a new electrical grid system and give all residential house owners a fixed bill and create new energy without solar or wind. Underdog Electric Inc. Knows why.
I think ev companies are worried about hydrogen combustion engines. They also exhaust is just h20. So ev companies are pancking and trying to shut it down. Greed greed greed. Especially from Europe. Thank you Toyota for scaring the ev market.
Why is it wrong that fossil fuel producers have an opinion about blue hydrogen but not for a company that produces technology for green hydrogen?
Hydrogen should not be used in cars
I think Hydrogen is a solution, for big scale energy users. Cars and Trucks won't benefit much as those are better using electric than Hydrogen. Hydrogen is better for big scale structures like furnaces in factory, trains, or planes, the reason is the storage and infrastructure to produce / store them. Hydrogen is very flammable, and using it on places that less likely to meet unskilled operator is better.
What's the commercial potential of green hydrogen production from photocatalysis?
Fuel of the future is NUCLEAR that energizes the whole UNIVERSE!
I always believed that we would not have all the trouble we have now. If since the beginning we have used ALL the alternatives available. This means not only the good stuff like hydrogen and electricity, but also gasolin. Using all of them you would create a balance and i believe we wouldn't have all the trouble we have currently
it ain't hype
The science behind green hydrogen is there. As lobbying and government efforts made blue hydrogen prominent, the same should be applied for green hydrogen.
Solar is the future
Considering that all solar plants are peak load plants and massive electricity storage is not available. It would be easier to use excess electricity to produce stuff such as green hydrogen.Cost of lithium, cobalt, nickel (already happened) is going to skyrocket sooner or later. Most of these metals are present in single country or parts of refining are present in China (possible economic blackmail). Its battery to keep hydrogen as alternative rather than betting everything on lithium.
Can't we just focus on ALL of them? That would make more sense.
Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe. Frank Zappa.
Since most of the natural gas the planet has is in Russia and Iran...maybe we will start to see hydrogen with different eyes. Not as an alternative fuel, but a necessary fuel as there are no alternatives.
Unless you can get battery powered cars to charge as fast as you can pump petrol from empty to full, I don't think they will ever dominate the market (unless governments force people to give up petrol and diesel). Hydrogen powered cars can fill as quick as a normal petrol tank. If the right infrastructure was built for this, I don't see why it couldn't be the dominant fuel for transport in the future.
So Li ion battery has to be kept between 20% to 80% of charge, Charging a battery to 100% often will destroy it. Next H2 is not a fuel it is an energy storage, which can be stored in low pressure metal hydride containers. Fuel Cell is not the only way to use H2, the cars that we use now can be converted. Most people can not go out a buy a brand new car. But the main reason not to go electric battery, is the toxic elements used in the Battery, Nickel 1000 more time toxic than lead Pb , LI more toxic still, this is the CFL path all over again, you know when we started seeing Mercury in our drinking water. And if you think Corporation's will always handle the recycling properly then you live in lala land.
Buying a car is sun extremely personal choice similar to buying a house so some people may decide it that they are willing to live with the costs of hydrogen fuel cells. On the other hand it may be that both technologies are utilized to bring the cost down. If the fuel cell technology was used to charge the battery of the car then its very possible and very likely that it could be a much greener technology if these technologies and the people who are making them choose to work together we could have an entirely green system with the technology thats already out for green allergy in the first place which is solar and wind. I think that the companies that are making these technologies need to work together and stop fighting each other so that we can have a much more efficient and better type of car and heating in our homes and cooling in our homes. If we work together in this race to become green the chances are that we will succeed much faster than if the The companies who make this stuff continue to fight each other. I personally would choose to have a car thats based on multiple technologies but runs highly efficiently without having to pay over $100,000 for the car!
The Truth about Fuel Hydrogen is HHO Generator... a basic Technology... but it should be used as it is being produced to eliminate the danger in storage. /at last years price it would cost me appx 16 to charge a 75Kw battery , + since then we had appx 900 put on the bill & then in october it goes up again , April 1st in line with the Paris accord so have the energy companies tearing the RS out of it on one side in the October and the Paris accord doing the same in April 1st now ask me if i want an EV !
Why not just burn the hydrogen in the car engine than to use a fuel cell?
You are not considering battery cost and lifetime
Not to worry... India will crack the code and turn hydrogen fuel cells into a success...
Do we have enough Lithium in the world to mine... ?
Seems a Bogus comparison as you failed to include the energy losses in the grid-to-battery stage.Which corporations are sponsoring you?Looks like petroleum production.
A new source of green hydrogen is about to debut on the global scene. This will radically change the ROI and efficiency paradigm. Pulse Technology will move the world forward towards green sustainability
Cost of lithium has tripled since your report
the real truth is that if you honestly do caluculations on the the costs, its still cheaper than digging up oil , transporting it, refining it into gasoline. then retransporting it to fuel stations.
this video is laughable, its propaganda to discourrage evolution.
mmmm. a few points here. Those whirlies cost of fortune to make. They are not carbon neutral has it takes machinery to make the necessary materials, build them and put them in place , plus their lifespan is ridiculously low and if i am to believe urban myths, the parts are not recyclable and have to be buried which will eventually contaminate the soil and water supply. Plus the fact that you have to deforest, displace animal habitats does more damage to the environment than what you are portraying. Also them electric car batteries are using rare earth minerals that have to be extracted from earth usually in third world countries by child labor to keep cost low, leaving pits the size of volcanoes into the ground and also not a good way to recycle those batteries after their lifespan.so... yay for litium cars.... not really!
Also did not look at green sources of energy to make hydrogen, e.g hydro electric, solar or wind. Japan can do it because of their extensive nuclear power.
You did not cover hydrogen fuel as an internal combustion replacement if diesel for bog vehicles, as per JCB diggers. Nor did you consider the battery weight and weight needed to power an HGV truck which in effect deliver the worlds logistics. A tractor, digger or hgv would be better using hydrogen. And you did not look at ammonia production from animals, used to produce hydrogen onsite.
Absorption of Hydrogen from smoke and storing it as a solid on metallic film at room temperature and releasing with a laser light is the most economical way the store Hydrogen and requires no safety measures or compression to store and use!
As soon as my car drives itself, then I will subscribe to skill share. Until then, eyes on the road.
Bull, hydrogen can effectively and efficiently be produced on the vehicle through on demand method without storage through Electrolysis by adding an alternator,water tank and tungsten electrodes. The real problem is it is to cheap and control through government taxation and big oil and electric companies have suppressed its use. What happened to fuel cells at your house serviced by the electric companies and automakers converting the fuel to hydrogen.
People are missing the point of all of this hydrogen hype. #1. Almost all hydrogen is produced from fossil fuels The only way around that is to have a massive hydrogen generator then compress the gas which is VERY volatile and highly explosive2. These engines that BURN hydrogen are regular combustion engines! They have the same emissions as any other internal combustion engine.
Hydrogen as fuel of the future is a big scam. How do you produce hydrogen, simple, use power mainly from fossil fuel and break down water into hydrogen and oxygen. It's just transferring energy from fossil fuel like oil into flammable hydrogen and oxygen. Nature already gave us clue that massive energy can be obtained thru nuclear reaction such as that found in the sun. Storage of nuclear waste can in specific areas of space.
the cost of hydrogen is far to high two thirds of the energy used to separate the oxygen from the hydrogen to get one third of what you need that will never be financially viable regards Graham Flowers
Why not just use hydrogen powered equipment to process it?
harnessing would be helpful again!..there is!
micro algae plus sunlight (solar power) plus river water = hydrogen proven in the lab...just needs upscaling...or have you guys missed this research in israel
What about solar thermal powered methane pyrolysis?
Let the future come first..All we hear is weapons and attacks these days. So let the future come.
So developed Nations like US, UK, France, Germany etc need toinvest in these technologies:-(1) Nuclear-Energy => PWRs & FBRs(2) Hydrogen-FCEVs(3) Green-HydrogenFor Automobiles, these technologies must be adopted:-(1) Battery-EVs => 2, 3 & 4-wheelers(2) Hydrogen-FCEVs => 6-wheelers & Above, Airplanes & Ships
Thank you for the clear explanation for a technology to efficiently produce and efficiently utilize hydrogen
Hydrogen should be viewed as alternative to batteries. Whatever excess energy generated through solar power should be transferred to electrolyser (built at public level). Though inefficient, still packs more greens than battery production.
With cost of black gold at 15-23 dollars per barrel, the USSR economy collapsed, and the sovok itself collapsed, and the "golden" horde ("russia") budget can only be fulfilled only with oil price at $ 42.4 and higher
Sell your Tesla stock ? haha
How to create hydrogen? CH4 + 2H2O = 4H2 + CO2... Plus CO2? Whoops, there's that pesky, evil carbon again!
"Planes, Trains, and Automobiles". I see what you did there.
Do to Democrats sleeping with the Enemy gas will be 10 bucks a gallon.
The only way to get free hydrogen on Earth is to make it. The trouble is that making hydrogen requires more energy than the hydrogen so produced can provide.
Tell me what this highly flammable gas filled balloon was blown up by then? This video had potential but its far too hand waving without explanation. To say a highly flammable gas isnt dangerous is absurd containment would be difficult in objects such as car which do crash into each other time to time. If it was used in something that didnt move that would increase its safety Im sure.
Water vapor is a greenhouse gas.. so what will pumping vast amounts of water into the atmosphere do to the climate regarding rain and floods?
Excellent journalism and this subject increases in relevance over time. I agree with Vijay, hydrogen is explosive, but so is petroleum! Also his professional role within this great publication is well chosen;-) My own investigative journalism is as follows: Currently UK has several experimental projects to create a viable hydrogen economy with renewable energy infrastructure to meet net zero. Germany is involved by investing and manufacturing wind turbines(Siemens) for the UK .Their energy company (Eon) is a player in the neoliberal British energy market. Indeed German and French energy companies have already built the world's largest offshore wind power in the North Sea and reliable nuclear plants by EDF are currently being constructed. UK has around 50+% renewable energy and this will increase still further, at least to mid 2030s as further wind farms in the planning and construction. This being alongside tidal/wave as experimental projects. UK has one of the longest coastlines and best geography for renewables in the world. Renewable energy to power to the whole of Europe could be possible. What's more the world's largest manufacturing site for electrolysers(green hydrogen) in the UK builds storage for renewable energy. Europe can wean itself from Russian petro dependence and any further conflagrations in Eastern Europe too! Lets create a hydrogen economy to store renewable energy/transportation and replace natural gas. European energy security and self reliance is possible. Wir shaffen das! ;-)
What about prices?
This documentary is also available to watch in Spanish: wish the world would use this instead of EV's.
nuclear energy to power green hydrogen is the answer my friends if you think otherwise you are an idiot
H2 in transportation is dead! Why keep on pushing this nonsense?
" we should use deserts , that land isn't used for anything anyway " Hey Adolf , I live there , with camels and palmtrees and lizards !
Hydrogen will never be viable for passenger cars.
All well and good on the surface. But this is all politically driven instead of science ( that has become more of a religious cult than actual principles). Any ideology that starts with a premise that 0.04% of Co2 ( the most important life sustaining substance on this planet for all plant and animal life) has any ability to alter the climate is ridiculous and injurious to progress.
Why not natural gas or manufacture gas
30 % efficincy cycle for cars? With green hydrogen... I dont think so
The solution for it is quite easy for energy companies. They need to invest in hydrogen production and distribution because they need to produce more electiricity than we use each day and that useless energy could be transfered into production of hydrogen for power generation. This way its no longer wasted energy. Similar thing with desalination of water in dry areas. If they could use this wasted energy there then it would gain net profti and not net deficit and it would help nearby population. Just a simple idea. I don't know about its real life application but it should be possible to do so with at least part of wasted energy.
It is classic until the Russian bear did not raise his head from the ashes the German society will insist on NIMBY (not in my back yard) time for action of german ingenuity solve the issue of hydrogen.
The announcers voice is too bright and poppy... ssss...sss.s.s.s.sss..ssss. Hard to hear. Fire the audio guy.
Excellent video. The British Isles has some of the best wave/tidal/wind resources in the world and green hydrogen from renewables could provide Europe with energy self reliance! With the Ukraine crisis, Germany is dependent on Russian gas for electricity. Germany should continue investing and manufacturing wind turbines(Siemens) for the UK .Their energy company (Eon) is a player in the neoliberal British energy market. Indeed German and French energy companies have helped build the world's largest offshore wind power in the North Sea and reliable nuclear plants by EDF are currently being constructed. UK has around 50+% renewable energy and this will increase still further, at least to mid 2030s as further wind farms in the planning and construction.

European energy security and self reliance is possible. Wir shaffen das! ;-)
As a rule of thumb, war machines are generally speaking never build for climate purposes .... it's like a building an eco friendly superyaht.
thank you for this
Full tank for 50-55 euros ? Already cheaper than regular fuel in some European nations
Toyota hydrogen combustion engine is the solution to be able to experience the thrill of combustion and the neutral carbon footprint of hydrogen.
I FIND ALL DW FILMS ARE ALIGNED WITH THE GLOBALISTS AGENDA AND ARE CHALKED FULL OF MISINFORMATION,MYTHS AND OUTRIGHT LIES!
SOLAR \SEPERATION IS REDUNDANT AND NOT NEEDED! ITS ALSO NOT FEASIBLE AND TAKES UP WAY TOO MUCH SPACE, RESOURCES AND HAS WAY TOO MUCH ENTROPY!
HYDROGEN IS NOT "PRODUCED" IT'S ALSO NOT RARE IT IS BY FAR THE MOST ABUNDANT ELEMENT IN THE UNIVERSE. IT CAN BE EASILY COVERTED FROM WATER AT A NEWGATIVE MONETARY COSTS. BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLES ARE NOWHERE NEAR 60% EFFICIENT AND NOWHERE NEAR AS EFFICIENT AS REGUALR HYDROCARBON FUELS NEVER MIND HYDROGEN. THE EFFICIENCY DATA IS HIGHLY SKEWED AND NOT MEASURED PROPERLY. THEY ARE PUSHING BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLES TO MAXIMIZE PROFITS AND EXACT CONTROL OVER THE POPULATION MAKING THEM INCREASINGLY DEPENDANT. BATTERY ELECTRIC VEHICLES ARE NOT CLEAN,GREEN.EFFICIENT,VIABLE, SCALABLE OR FEASIBLE!!!!
