Age of hydrogen

It becomes more and more plausible, that the prophets of the hydrogen age had been 2 places of the periodical system wrong. Not hydrogen but Lithium is the solution.

  Hydrogen is only an energy storage

You can drill for mineral oil or natural gas. You can mine for coal. But from where comes hydrogen? You can gain hydrogen by electrolysis of water, but the required electric power is unproportionately more, than to gain with a fuel cell out of the hydrogen.

  Competiton by other energy storages

The prophets of the hydrogen age pushed their prophecies at a time as the world of battery technolgy was only from lead. Lead is not only for the human a poisonous heavy metal, but also for electric cars. As long as there are only lead batteries, the electric car has only a sluggishly wall flower existence.

Battery technology based on Lithium conquers application by application the world of batteries. First at mobile phones and notebooks. The conquest of a new application followed always the same path. First some high end products, some years later the complete market down to cheap mass products. Today, it's hard to find a notebook or mobile phone withoug Lithium battery. At electric tools, it started 2005 at the high end products.

  Lithium and hybrid technology gives hydrogen no chance

All what had been proclaimed for decades as the advantages of hydrogen and fuel cells is today surpassed by other technologies.

Where will hydrogen as a storage medium determine our energy future and where will the hydrogen technology fail by more suitable methods?

  2006 the dusk for fossile fuel starts

Cheap mineral oil was yesterday, the price system between differen energy sources and technologies for usage in the area of mobility changes durable.

Price development at fuel
Energy becomes more expensive wail the fossiles. Wrong, only the short dated special deal fossile fuels becomes more expensive. Long time available energy becomes cheaper.

Electricity comes out of the plug
From where should the electric power for electric mobility come? Some people belive the electric power comes out of the plug. Other belive electric power falls down from the sky.

EVER Monaco vs Hannover hall 13
2 exhibitions with the same theme, our mobility in the futures, but contrariness to the thematic similarity, differences like day and night.

Hydrogen age
Physics can not be changed. The physical physical of hydrogen are known. The hydrogen age is q question of believe.

Hybrid vs hydrogen
The duell over the future of mobility. In one corner the since decades proclaimed hydrogen, on the other side of the ring: Hybrid with Lithium based batteries.
