A Hydrogen Economy:  A Hydrogen Economy Agenda:  Agenda A Hydrogen Vision of the Future Hydrogen Systems Producing Hydrogen Storing and Transporting Hydrogen Hydrogen Fueled Transport Problems with Hydrogen The Promise of Hydrogen Hydrogen Summary A Vision of a Hydrogen Future:  A Vision of a Hydrogen Future "I believe that water will one day be employed as fuel, that hydrogen and oxygen which constitute it, used singly or together, will furnish an inexhaustible source of heat and light, of an intensity of which coal is not capable. I believe then that when the deposits of coal are exhausted, we shall heat and warm ourselves with water. Water will be the coal of the future."  Jules Vernes (1870) L´île mystérieuse The Hydrogen H2 Molecule:  The Hydrogen H2 Molecule http://planetforlife.com/h2/index.html Hydrogen Economy Schematic:  Hydrogen Economy Schematic Hydrogen Economy in Hong Kong:  Hydrogen Economy in Hong Kong http://www.gii.com.hk/eng/clean_energy.htm Hydrogen Fueling Station:  Hydrogen Fueling Station Hydrogen Systems:  Hydrogen Systems Hydrogen Energy Cycle:  Hydrogen Energy Cycle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_economy Hydrogen Production Cycle:  Hydrogen Production Cycle Crabtree et al., “The Hydrogen Economy,” Physics Today, Dec 2004 Operating the Hydrogen Economy:  Operating the Hydrogen Economy Bossel et al., The Future of the Hydrogen Economy: Bright or Bleak?, Oct 28, 2004 http://www.oilcrash.com/articles/h2_eco.htm Hydrogen Economy Supply Chain:  Hydrogen Economy Supply Chain Hydrogen Pathways:  Hydrogen Pathways http://www.ch2bc.org/index2.htm Advantages of a Hydrogen Economy:  Advantages of a Hydrogen Economy Waste product of burning H2 is water Elimination of fossil fuel pollution Elimination of greenhouse gases Elimination of economic dependence Distributed production http://www.howstuffworks.com/hydrogen-economy.htm Issues with Hydrogen:  Issues with Hydrogen Not widely available on planet earth Usually chemically combined in water or fossil fuels (must be separated) Fossil fuel sources contribute to pollution and greenhouse gases Electrolysis requires prodigious amounts of energy Technological Questions:  Technological Questions Where does hydrogen come from?

Energy vs. Instrinsic Energy:  Alkali Prod. Energy vs. Instrinsic Energy Energy needed to produce alkali metal hydrides relative to the energy content of the liberated hydrogen.

No practical source of cheap hydrogen No good way to store hydrogen No good way to distribute hydrogen Problems with physical & chemical properties of hydrogen Technology cannot change these facts. Compact / convenient future energy carrier needed Methane, ethane, methanol, ethanol, butane, octane, ammonia, etc. are better energy carriers. Difficult to understand the enthusiasm for hydrogen Hydrogen does not solve the energy problem and it is a bad choice for carrying energy.
