    Default Re: Toyota shares hydrogen love

    It's hard to imagine hydrogen cars getting established here unless someone comes up with a much better way to produce hydrogen. Current methods use much more energy than charging a battery does.
    Might have a place for long haul transport eventually though. I do think these are cool, just don't see much point in them currently.

    i doubt they will improve green hydrogen efficiency all that much, after all its just a means of transporting energy. if you have a nice big dam hydro power station goign to waste seling dirt cheap power then efficiency doesn't really matter.
    hydrogen cars are basically a electric car with a hydrogen fuel cell range extender. no doubt they will end up having different configs, bigger battery with smaller fuel cell. ie plug in hybrid.

    with big vehicles it will depend on if they use fuel cells or simply burn it. both have advantages and draw backs.

    Now look at this video from Toyota about solid state batteries.

    Looks good, hope it lives up to initial promise.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    it will help, but its not a big leap forward. energy density is still no where near enough for heavy vehicles.
    it will make cars longer range, or use smaller batteries to keep weight down. ie short range but more efficient.
