This is the Ballard vision of a hydrogen-electric car. I also think this would be the most efficient method of combining the silence and effectiveness of electricity with the power of an internal combustion engine ran on hydrogen.
Getting hydrogen from water is one of today's hottest and fastest-evolving areas in the renewable energy world. The basic methods for hydrogen production, though, have remained the same at their core, and everything is now innovated around the same old principles. 1. Electrolysis Electrolysis is...

Scientists have long studied bacteria that can clean up toxic waste by eating it. Other bacteria have been employed to produce electricity. Now scientists have found a two-for-one deal in bacteria that will eat toxic chemicals 24/7 and make electricity...
A source at FoMoCo tells us they plan to rock down to electric-gas avenue in the near-term future. Although we knew there'd be a 2009 model of a certain razor-bladed sedan with some kind of charge to it, we...
You can always boost your car's performance by adding a so-called "cell" to your car's air input. This cell produces hydrogen through electrolysis of water impurified with baking soda, for example, or another electrolyte. The plans are easy to...
