Will hydrogen have more range than batteries?

Depends on how much H2 is on the vehicle. Adding range is just a matter of adding a tank. There are other advantages - fast refill/recharge and performance in cold temperatures.

On scale how many kilotons of Methane will they need per...say day/month to supply a nation of hydrogen cars? It seems a bit of diminishing returns to use hydrocarbons for hydrogen. Water, Hmmmm....we have a lot of it, but it is a necessity of life on Earth and I don't think electrolysis of our water would go well on the kind of scale they predict or want in terms of profit motive. Only the future will tell.

Do they obtain the Hydrogen from (maybe electrolysis of) water? or is it from another source?

It's a central part of the H2 debate- where do you get the hydrogen. There's green - from electrolysis, blue - from SMR with carbon capture and grey H2 - just SMR. Many experts say green H2 can be cost comparable to grey maybe by 2030. I think sooner possibly.

I've always been pro-hydrogen. But thing is in cold weather climates is black ice. there is already an issue with that normal combustion engines.

I mean you could try to somehow collect the condensate but your tank will freeze unless you add like antifreeze to it. but still...

it would be great for home heating tho, the delivery is already there and a lpg same as nat gas.

really i think all this alt energy is region specific.

there is a lot more product than just gasoline that come from oil. Even natural gas, all that "bad" fracking you see is from bad practices, you get ethane from fracking... all your plastics come from that

idk, this is kind of scattered in a hurry, gotta get out the door, but i think you get my point

I don't need to know much about a particular problem when I'm an intuitive, educated person. My general guess is usually enough.

As far as you are concerned;

WIKI:

Recycling processes today recover approximately 25% to 96% of the materials of a lithium-ion battery cell, depending on the separation technology.[7][8] In order to achieve this goal, several steps are combined into complex process chains, especially considering the task to recover high rates of valuable materials with regard to involved safety issues.[9][10]

Lithion Recycling has developed an efficient & cost-effective process for recycling lithium-ion batteries, the most widely used batteries for electrical vehicles & portable electronics today. This new process will allow up to 95% of these batteries components to be recovered & treated so that they can be reused by battery manufacturers—a concrete way to close the loop of battery life-cycle. The technology put forward by Lithion Recycling uses an innovative combination of processes, based on hydrometallurgy. The result is a size and chemistry agnostic process emitting very low GHG emissions.

And I don't understand what do you mean by "supply houses with backup power"...But I sense confusion in that one as well lol

You've been schooled, lol, i'm sorry

In your imagination, again. And yeah, you are a bit sorry. What is it with these arrogant battery lovers.

Since recycling of Li-Ion batteries is not cost effective in 2020, what do you propose to do with mountains of dead battery packs? Every battery made today will die one day. And before you say they will supply homes with backup power, better call your insurance company.

I wouldn't presume to say "you were schooled". Have fun.

First of all, no need to be rude, but then again, you're probably quite insecure about all these posts on your profile about hydrogen... Read the following, but please have a seat first because I don't want you fainting or panicking after you realize who's the ignorant one here.

Which is a better source of energy and why, solar or hydrogen? Solar energy is abundant (with caveats) and hydrogen is almost non-existent as free hydrogen. As a means of creating storing and distributing energy for cars, electricity produced by solar PV and stored in batteries beats the “hydrogen economy” by more than two times. Let me explain; The round-trip efficiency of the process electricity-to-hydrogen-to-electricity is around 40%. Less if your vehicle uses a combustion engine, down to 25%. Compared with the same round trip for electricity-to-batteries-to-electricity at 85%. That means your vehicle needs more than twice the input energy using hydrogen compared to batteries. The “hydrogen economy” seemed like a good idea 20 or 30 years ago. But battery technology overtook hydrogen and now it is simply a niche product. It will remain that way until someone comes up with new materials and processes that make hydrogen cheaper. And even then, (IF it happens) the world will take at least 10 years to transition. Using hydrogen created by renewable energy sounds great until you work the details. You can’t put (much) hydrogen into existing pipelines. Hydrogen creates problems with both hydrogen embrittlement and corrosion, which means it requires special materials for pipes and valves. The problem is compounded because hydrogen can easily migrate into the crystal structure of most metals. And hydrogen just isn’t easy, or cheap, to make. It burns cleaner than fossil fuels, but that is hardly a high bar.

Now, that's just the basics. As far as the video you've posted, it seems that indeed English railways is abt 60% powered by diesel. My bad to presume that the oldest railway nation is also one of the advanced railway nations these days. (still not an excuse to be impolite really). Why in the hell would they want to use electricity to manufacture hydrogen, to manufacture electricity again when solar is making such GIANT leaps lately with both batteries and solar cells...It couldn't be that the oligarchs in UK are worried about the decentralization of their power, literally?!

You've been schooled, lol, i'm sorry

Cheap and dirty, gray hydrogen can be made by stripping natural gas at €1 per kilogram. Capturing the escaping CO2 to lower emissions, which makes so-called blue hydrogen, ups the cost to €1.50 to €2 per kilogram. Green hydrogen, made from renewable electricity and zero emissions, can cost up to €5 per kilogram.

“The main booster has to be a significant increase in volumes to bring down the price … to a range of €1-€2 per kilogram as quickly as possible,” the draft states. “Time to lay the foundations for this rapid acceleration and industrial leadership is now.”

Production targets would be set for the desired amounts of green, blue and gray hydrogen for 2030, 2040 and 2050.

In the short term, the Commission proposal suggests paying producers of gray hydrogen to go blue by implementing carbon capture technologies.

Good video. I love Cold Fusion.

I'm with Chop_Chop and have been saying for decades hydrogen could easily swap out our other fuel paradigm, which to be honest I'm not a fan of centralized fuel and our dependence on Big Oil. Doesn't mean we couldn't generate our own hydrogen though - like how we made bio-diesel in our Oakland warehouse in 2005.

Further, to generate the hydrogen you could burn all the fossil fuels, plus trash, etc in a central place and scrub it all to heck more efficiently in order to get all the potential pollution than what would have been decentralized by the millions of vehicles using it.

On the other hand I'm excited for graphene batteries.

I think fully electric, solar rechargeable is gonna take over in 10 years. Hydrogen is too heavy to store and dangerous.

Any idea what to do with mountains of dead batteries? It is not cost effective to recycle Li-ion batteries in 2020. Also figure in the cost to replace them. Hydrogen is not heavy to store compared to batteries. When you pass a propane truck or a propane gas company with 1,000 gallon tanks do you think Propane is dangerous? Hydrogen is safer than propane.

H2 is a much better storage method than Li-ion. The cause of the explosion below has not been identified yet, over a year later.

They are not talking about fracking, these are natural hydrogen sources

Not really. Seems you know nothing about today's Hydrogen industry.

Zero-carbon hydrogen injected into gas grid for first time in groundbreaking UK trial. "The 20% H2 & natural gas blend is being used to heat 100 homes & 30 faculty buildings at Keele University in Staffordshire. Unlike natural gas, when H2 is burned it produces heat & water as opposed to C02." LINK

Yup, a bogus way to continue fracking, which is bad every which way. Let's make hydrogen a different way, 'kay? In this context carbon is a red herring. There are plentiful other terrible effects of fracking, including wasting MASSIVE amounts of water, then polluting the water table, causing earthquakes, ruining communities and property values, fucking with nature--need I go on?

Yes, but this article shows the true colors of why it's being pushed over solar or bladeless rooftop turbines. They want control and ownership, and for incomprehensible reasons, to disrupt communities and the earth. Maybe this is a way they see to repurpose their oil and gas fracking companies once they've extracted the last of that.

Hydrogen is the definition of decentralized energy- anyone with water and electricity can make it. No more monopolies, no tankers, no Petrodollar, no refineries. China, Korea and Japan get it. North Americans can watch.

Aaaand, there it is, the reason I was suspicious of the hydrogen push. New ways to destroy the earth, and centralize the process. God forbid we have actual clean energy with energy independence.

Do you think it's a good idea to form your opinion of H2 based on the statements from one "guy"? Why not read the just released Australian National Hydrogen Strategy - authored in part by Australia's Chief Scientist Dr. Alan Finkel (136 page PDF 22 NOV 2019)

https://www.industry.gov.au/data-and-publications/australias-national-hydrogen-strategy

He said "It takes large fossil-fuel powered factories produce the hydrogen."

LA TIMES: California invested heavily in solar power. Now there's so much that other states are sometimes paid to take it

Not since the height of the "Drug War" has there been so many misconceptions and outright lies told about something so important.

I met a guy who works with large passenger/vehicle ferries for my area. (Probably more than 100+ hours of ferry traffic per day) He was recently in a meeting that decided the future of power choice for the next generation of ferries. He told me it was looking good that the choice would be hydrogen.

I asked "Where do we get the hydrogen for that many ferries?"

He said "It takes large fossil-fuel powered factories produce the hydrogen."

Corporatism and bureaucratic deals win again.

It would be so nice if the train system in tha USA would expand. Travelling around the USA by train - currently limited and not convenient. Hope this news signals a move in the right direction.

Cow power: Toyota’s new car can run on hydrogen from Irish manure by Chop_Chop in Hydrogen

  • People refuse to pack smelly manure into their car to "refuel"
  • Businesses pop up to refuel for you - extra money.
  • Manufacterers come up with a way to package manure into cleaner-to-handle "refuel cells" so people can put it in themselves without feeling gross - extra money.

Meet the CEO who's building 14K hydrogen semitrucks. "It's also starting to build a network of 700 hydrogen stations across the country to refuel its new fleet. Company executives say the network should be complete by 2028." by Chop_Chop in Hydrogen

From what I understand, Tesla's electric semis are a big flop because of weight limits and how much the batteries weigh. So maybe this is a great fit.

Wesley Clark spilled the beans years ago and still the wars continue. Tulsi Gabbard says $4 billion / mo spent on Afghanistan. What a disgrace. edit: 4 billion not 400

True. But they never had half of global wealth.

They also had borders with other Empires.

The US controls the entirety of both coastal oceans. And had naval military bases strategically located attend the world.

There has only been a single unipolar hegemon.

It has incomparable economic, strategic, and geographical advantages.

There has never been an empire a powerful as the US in recorded human history.

Edit: This isn't to say that the US empire will last forever. However, comparable empires do not exist.

Source is their housing and construction bubble, combined with the economy which demands 10% growth that is unsustainable. Their economy cannot self sustain, so they're chained to the US economy.

China has an aging population, and a much smaller youth population to care for the elderly.

There US has the advantage of being the world reserve currency, and it's estimated that the combination of the us government and US corporations in half of the world's wealth.

I also pity the US for it's wars fought for Israel, cause Israel can't fight them themselves.

I do feel sorry for China.

You shouldn't. They have not wasted trillions of dollars on useless wars over the last 20 years. Among other accomplishments, they have built the largest high speed rail network in the world in the time that the US has been in Afghanistan. That's trainsets, track, stations. The US has been -somehow- entangled in Syria, Ukraine and more.

They have been fooled into the economic enslavement of their people, who are on the verge of revolt.

I do feel sorry for China.

  • They were fooled into the one child policy.
  • They are fooled by the climate change hoax.
  • They are fooled into thinking they have no oil resources (even though nearly every major land mass and sea region on the planet had their own oil, they simply haven't drilled deep enough). Or they were smart enough to leave it there and not risk invasion by the oiligarchs..
  • They have been fooled into the economic enslavement of their people, who are on the verge of revolt.
  • They have been fooled into domestic spying on their people, so the Western Intel agencies can spy on them.

Even so, I admire China's methods of global diplomacy, in contrast to the US mode of hegemony.

I wouldn't get one. Man made climate change is a hoax.

Fossil fuels demonstrably do not come from fossils.

Hydrogen fuel is less efficient than most energy sources.
