drbubb Posted March 20, 2006 Report Share Posted March 20, 2006 Warren Brusse, author of the Second Great Depression, has visited GEI and by personal email, given some interesting comments concerning the Hydrogen Economy/ Fuel Cells. He think these technologies may be slow to deliver on their promised energy efficiencies. Here's an excerpt: "A hydrogen society along with fuel cells is way, way down the road. I would not be investing my money in anything related to this. That doesn't mean that it won't happen someday, but there are far more practical solutions to energy that can be applied much more quickly. Solar and wind power are suddenly taking off (especially wind power). However, the thing that makes them extremely attractive for the immediate future are the apparent breakthroughs that are happening both in batteries (Lithium Ion) and large capacitors. These two areas will give practical energy storage which will make both wind and solar far more practical as a primary power source. These breakthroughs also make plug-in hybrids a real option, with equivalent 100 mpg cars a reality." ...MORE: http://www.greenenergyinvestors.com/index.php?showtopic=5 ((see: post#12)) = = = WHAT do others think?
