In light of various threads regarding Oil Prices, renewable energy sources, ethanol / biofuels / UCG coal mining - Syngas, Hydrogen + Gas = Hythane and etc...
The world is realising it is slowly but surely going to run out of energy, we continue to pollute at unprecedented levels, and their has been a massive shift in search for cleaner fuels, technologies...
This will spur lots of research...and I think an interesting sector to look at will be Hydrogen Energy...and the possibility of a water powered / hybrid car.
By definition and according to the laws of physics, energy is neither made nor lost but merely transformed into one form or another. There is simply too much hydrogen out there
When will we see cars in mainstream society powered by H20?
Tata in India is looking to make $2,500 cars in India...and various companies are looking to develop Hythane (hydrogen + gas) as an alternative fuel to supply the massively growing Indian Market.
Every now and then you hear reports about innovators in the States, Europe, Japan and Australia come up with revolutionary designs ONLY for them to be either scrapped away / purchased by governments / "interested parties" / such that their ideas have never been brought forward to fruition.
BMW has manufactured hydrogen powered cars...only at a very steep cost.
Can the energy in water be somehow converted into hydrogen energy (electrolysis is still too expensive) to make it feasible in the future?
Some food for thought --->
