  • Beijing's coal ban may herald the end of the fuel

    Could the world be approaching peak coal production?

    It sounds unlikely, given that demand for the black stuff has surged in the past decade. But Beijing is planning to ban coal burning in its six central districts from 2020. If energy-hungry China backs away from coal, the demise of the world's dirtiest fuel may be at hand.

    The Beijing plan was announced on Monday by the city's Municipal Bureau of Environmental Protection. It is no pipedream. The first of four big coal-fired power stations, Gaojing, shut last month. The city plans to turn off the rest by the end of 2016, but two will be kept functional but mothballed for emergencies.

    Four new gas-fired plants, and pipelines to bring more gas to the city from Shaanxi province, are under construction. Smaller coal-burning factories and heating plants will also have to shut or move out by 2020.

    Beijing won't clean its air overnight. Cars and other vehicles are the biggest source of the deadly particulate matter in the city's smogs, ahead of coal, according to a report last year from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Dust storms also play a role.

  • Ballard Systems (BLDP_) is engaged in the development and commercialization of proton exchange membrane fuel cells worldwide. This stock closed up 3.4% to $4.26 in Tuesday's trading session.

    Tuesday's Range: $4.04-$4.47
    52-Week Range: $1.25-$8.38
    Tuesday's Volume: 6.62 million
    Three-Month Average Volume: 4.77 million

    From a technical perspective, BLDP spiked higher here right above some near-term support at $3.88 with strong upside volume flows. This spike higher on Tuesday is starting to push shares of BLDP within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if BLDP manages to take out Tuesday's intraday high of $4.47 to some more key near-term overhead resistance at $4.52 with high volume.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    nobody in the world, can make fuel cell stacks cheaper than Ballard BLDP. Look at their Engineering servies contract customers, VW, Mercedes, toyota, Hyundai, BMW, ......almost everyone who wants fuel cell stack.

    Korean automaker Hyundai has also released its fuel-cell vehicle, Tucson (known as ix35 in Europe). The company is offering 1,000 cars for $500/month for 36 months and a down payment of $3,000. Clearly, the company is willing to sell the car at a loss and the reason for that might be the $130,000 in zero emission vehicle credits per car on offer from the state of California.

    Nanotech to boost solid state hydrogen storage gizmag
    By Steven Hondrogiannis
    March 9, 2011

    Hydrogen has great potential as a clean fuel source for powering our cars and airplanes, but it also poses some big hurdles – namely production, distribution infrastructure and storage. Storing hydrogen in gas or liquid form onboard a vehicle raises difficulties in terms of volume and pressurization – a hydrogen gas tank for a car would need to be around four times larger than current petroleum tanks. Another possible solution is the use of solid state hydrogen and the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS), along with the University of Glasgow, hope to boost this approach by developing a new storage system using materials modified at the nanoscale that receive and release the hydrogen at a faster rate.

    The research collaboration will involve changing the composition and microstructure of the current Hydrisafe hydrogen storage tank. This involves replacing the currently used lanthanum nickel (LaNi5) storage alloy with other hydride materials such as magnesium hydride (MgH2).

    It's hoped the research can deliver a storage solution able to feed a fuel cell at the required energy densities required of an aeroplane.

    "Using new active nanomaterials in combination with novel storage tank design principles presents a hugely exciting opportunity to address the considerable challenges of introducing hydrogen as a fuel for aviation," says Professor Gregory from the University of Glasgow, School of Chemistry says."

    If successful in this research, EADS plans to fly an unmanned hydrogen powered test plane in 2014.

    "Replacing traditional hydrocarbon-based fuels with pollution-free hydrogen in aeroplane and car engines would deliver huge benefits to the environment because carbon emissions would be dramatically reduced," says Dr.-Ing. Agata Godula-Jopek, Fuel Cells Expert in the EADS Power Generation Team.

    Larry Burns and fuel cell

    Larry Burns and fuel cell
    Even after some of the big-picture infrastructure hurdles are remedied, will the success of fuel-cell vehicles get tripped up by the term itself?

    It's an issue that concerns former General Motors R&D chief Larry Burns, now a University of Michigan professor.

    “If I could do one thing differently, I would never have uttered the word 'fuel cell,'” Burns recently said to IEEE Spectrum. “I would have called it a hydrogen battery—just another battery!”

    Fuel-cell vehicles are, essentially, battery-electric vehicles, as they also store chemical energy that's released in the form of electricity. Only whereas batteries require (still relatively time-consuming) recharging, fuel cells can be merely refilled—given the presence of a yet-installed hydrogen distribution infrastructure, of course.

    From the standpoint of the rest of the vehicle, you need similar components, and the driving experience is virtually the same as what you'd get from a battery electric—albeit with the potential for some significant weight savings versus a large battery pack.

    Underscoring all of this is the issue of image, and Burns admits that the term makes the technology seem strange and suggests that as a reason it's scared away investors.

    To speculate for the moment, 'fuel cell' might sound like it involves something dangerous and racing-related—or fossil-fuel-related—while batteries are now, to the vast majority, what we're now used to in our smartphones, our tablets, and what we go to bed next to, safely.

    Under New Prime minister Modi, businesses will be encouraged to make money, and at the same time provide quality service for the poor. Win Win for all with a huge market potential. Modi's team was creative by putting solar panels to cover Canals that distribute water ... eliminates/reduces water loss thru heat and evaporation. They eliminated the cost of land purchase for solar panels. USA will copy his model to put solar panels in California and Florida soon Indian model to create profitable business model is not patented, and is encouraged by all to copy. India is indeed smart and people oriented , not greed oriented.

    Elon Musk, in spite of his beautiful car, will lose out if he does not adapt fuel cells. BMW and Mercedes will eat his breakfast, Lunch and dinner. He knows all about fuel cells, because he uses them in his space program. Toyota knows it. Honda knows it, Bloom Energy Ram sridhar knows..
    Warren Buffet knows it. Waren is testing hydrogen fuel cells for his BN railroad trains. When he starts the stampede, watch out... Ballard will be bought out by Warren soon, in my book. Buy at these price and ride it out. Kramer knows it too.
