    I think the best storage for hydrogen will ultimately be 3500 miles of 4' diameter pipeline at 1200 psi...

    Seattle, WA to Portland, OR
    San Francisco, CA to San Diego, CA
    Portland, ME to Atlanta, GA
    Minneapolis, MN to Erie, PA
    Houston-Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX

    Feeding this from 100 PV and wind sources and tapping by 10000 users will meet the demands of more than 40% (?) of the country.

    It is expensive. Very expensive. But highly adaptable and flexible to mobile fuel needs ie. peaking power, overnight load leveling, fertilizer manufacturing, etc. But not cost efficient for oil refining...

    jj27713 jj27713 Jun 20, 2014 5:03 PM Flag have no intelligent response, then? Just more name-calling? Did you know I vote Democrat and/or Republican and/or Independent as I see fit?
    What oil-based product did you give up today? Did you buy a fuel cell device? Did you contribute to your catastrophic, CO2 based global climate change in any way today? Cause I know you wouldn't be hypocritical about anything so 'grave' as AGW...

    You really, really need to get a life, red. Just like the author of this trash that passes as journalism...

    Your climate change 'facts' are about as tenuous as your assertions. Global climate change has always existed and always will...with or without humans. The 'facts' you cling so dearly to have been under attack by real world data and most are falling hard.
    And we really can't get off the oil train without going back to the cellulose age. Today, everything you see, touch, ride in, eat, type on, medicate with, play with, communicate with, stay warm and cool with ad infinitum is all brought to you to in some degree by the 'big' oil you hate so much. How much are you willing to give up? If it is so bad, why don't you just give it up cold turkey today and walk the walk?

    Maybe that's because oil companies are making lots of earnings and some profits, but FC companies are as yet unproven? Maybe that is even more plain and simple...

  • Maybe I should start a trading account with this stock...

    Isn't MO a bit overextended here?

    Exactly the same thought here... Not seeing any news that might help to justifying latest prices. I was going to sell some covered calls in the past few days, but glad I didn't...

    My take on what solar grid should start doing

    The ocean's are slated to rise about 1" in the next 15 years. No-one knows whether this rise is predominantly natural or forced so enough with the catastrophic nonsense. PV generation is growing by leaps and bounds and is becoming competitive for the masses with many other power generation methods. If you are going to generate vast quantities of hydrogen you will likely have to do it by consuming vast quantities of fossil fuels (and producing vast quantities of your dreaded CO2) or you will get it from AE's such as wind and PV. Since wind and PV are inherently variable power generation methods you are GOING to have to have some way to store excess electrons anyway. Batteries are far more efficient than hydrogen in doing so, so batteries are still a very big player in the mix.

    Our predictions are still looking good for PV's future. The solar PV electrical approach is making huge inroads into providing power for the grid and for distributed generation. Costs are coming down radically to competitive levels and some form of large-form factor chemical storage will be available to store and distribute the excess generation within 15 years. Wind appears to be more problematic than PV by a large margin with exponentially varying power output, less generation reliability, more visual and aural impact, more damaging to wildlife, and apparently less able to survive without subsidies. PV appears to be the best contender for alternate electrical generation over the long term.

    What are the Chinese thinking !?

    Not a former A123 employee. Merely a childish imposter of another poster.

  • jj27713 jj27713 Jun 18, 2014 8:34 AM Flag

    100% correct. I stated this before and got dissed. Anybody who deals with China knows this will be the long term result so you had better plan on losing your intellectual property in deals like this.

    Q1 and Q2

  • The NC Zoo is a great public attraction operating at a high level of cleanliness and function.
    There is one area that could use improvement, however, They have diesel powered, open air trams that ferry customers around the zoo grounds. The engines are ~100 horsepower according to the staff. During the ride the heat and smell of the exhaust could be directly experienced by the passengers which means we were all seeing/breathing the exhaust particulates, NOx, CO, etc. as well as being subject to the noise of operation along the ride.
    This would be a perfect opportunity to substitute an FC powerplant which would fit in very well to this limited operation, local scope and everyone-getting-along-with-the-environment venue the Zoo is pushing. The lack of noise would be a big, big plus.
    I have sent them a couple communications to that effect and am waiting for a response...
