As an alternative, Japan is investing heavily in hydrogen

The Japanese are so ahead of the curve. Fuel Cell tech is clean and easy.

Short of solar, this is my fave energy tech.

And it makes so much sense to penetrate the market via industrial workhorses. Average consumers are too fickle, and led too much by advertising.

Industrial people are shrewd and capable.

The trouble with Hydrogen is that it’s more of an energy carrier than a fuel. The only “green” source is electrolysis from clean electricity, while most commercially available hydrogen comes from the hydrocarbon sources via thewater-gas shift reaction.

Building the infrastructure for widespread use of hydrogen fuel will require a lot of renewable electricity generation, plus a load of storage and distribution of liquid H2.

Yep. So let’s get to it.
