Hydrogen has a Future


If we’re to look at Iceland’s example of H2 usage, we’d think that an entire infrastructure has to be built to support hydrogen vehicles of the future. On top of that, I’m a bit cynical about how long it takes our government to build or rebuild an infrastructure unless we do it ourselves.

Developed by Honda R&D in Torrance, it’s a residential hydrogen refueler that uses sunshine and tap water to power a car: A 6-kilowatt array of solar panels powers an electrolysis machine that separates the hydrogen from the oxygen in water.

And that’s exactly what we’re going to do. I think the future is in diversity. For some, that will mean using ethanol fuel, for others electricity, and for some hydrogen… I’m really looking forward to a more responsible approach of living with our planet.
