MILKEN INSTITUTE REVIEW-“Hydrogen, used as an energy source instead of fossil fuels, is having a moment. Again.”

Larry fisher, a former New York Times reporter, writes about business, technology and design. Published September 25, 2020 Hydrogen, used as an energy source instead of fossil fuels, is having a moment. Again. Hydrogen last had a day in the sun some two decades ago, when President George W. Bush trumpeted its promise in his State of the Union address. But it has been going in and out of style for over a century.…

Hydrogen and Energy Intensity and Utilization

This nascent hydrogen segment explains it in terms of energy intensity and utilization. Valery Miftakhov from ZeroAvia, developers of zero-emission powertrains for aircraft powered by hydrogen, says aircraft have much higher energy intensity and utilization than cars. As such, they should be the focus of attention for hydrogen backers. In an article for Aeronautics Online, Miftakhov compared intensity and utilization rates for cars and aircraft, in other words the portion…

Synopsis of ACT’s Current Technology

Robert Plaisted, Advanced Combustion Technologies, Inc. January 21, 2020 ACT’s original technology began with an idea to make hydrogen using the least amount of energy. This brought about the cell with twenty-five plates and with an array of plates consisting of low impedance as a focus. This brought us to the cell that produces one kilogram of hydrogen for approximately sixty cents using fifteen cents per kiloWatt as a basis…
