If the developers behind H2PIA have their way, a hydrogen future may not be as far off as some predict. Its a super-sustainable hydrogen-powered Danish dream city where the houses draw electricity from the sun and wind.
Here’s how it works: “The renewable energy comes from solar or wind power and is used to split H2O – ordinary water – into H2 and O2 – hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen is vented into the atmosphere, which already contains about 20 percent O2. The hydrogen is used in fuel cells that can produce energy, for instance in the form of electricity and heat. In the fuel cell, the energy is created by silent electrochemical processes with no pollution. The only product left over when the hydrogen is used up, is pure water. During periods with low energy demand, we can store the hydrogen. Then, when the wind is not blowing and the sun is not shining, we use the stored hydrogen.”
Nice idea but we human should have, could have built it long time ago. Its time we take care of our aging mother earth. The third rock from the sun, its not just a planet, its home.
I remember learning about the hydrogen fuel cell in chemistry some time ago.
It does seem to be a perfect solution, but I rmember the only problem was that it was expensive. I don’t see where in this explanation it should be expensive. Okay the inital cost for the solar cells and wind turbine might be high, but once that is installed it seems to me that this is the perfect design for a sustainable house.
yeah,though its true,sustainable houses is too expensive,but then one way to protect really our environment. when can everyone think of this possibilities? if only the majority knew…
wow… what a unique idea, and it looks so good with the simple design. maybe we can start to think to design a sustainable house in our country especially in my country with a lot of sunlight.
not to expensive, i think..
its not actually efficient. every time you change energy from one form to another energy is wasted. fuel cells are particularly bad.
Hi! This is Nem K. Manandhar from Nepal.
I am really hopeful that an easy technology will soon be developed to generate hydrogen commercially which is a clean energy and will replace the all he fossil fuels and save our environment.
I am very much interested in introduce this technology. If anyone interest to cooperate me please kindly let me know.
