The future of fuel

    I fount this site www.waterfuelconverters.com. Electrolysis is easy, and finally someone is doing something about it. Im an electrical engineer and I applaud the owner of the company.

    nseidm1,

    As an electrical engineer, you should know that the energy in the hydrogen that you get out of electrolysis is less than the amount of electrical energy used to get the hydrogen. They want to use that hydrogen to heat water? And you think that will cost less than just using an electric heating element to heat the water? Come on!

    Hydrogen a great way to store energy. If you could purchase the electricity during cheeper low use times and extract your hydrogen then rather than buying electricity at peak periods it might be feesalble.
