Hydrogen fuel cell cars are not going mainstream anytime soon. But they make a lot of sense in other parts of the transportation sector, such as with semi-trucks, trains and ships. Wall Street is also waking up to the possibilities and investors are sniffing out investment opportunities. Bryan Pivovar, a Senior Research Fellow at the National Renewable Energy Lab, talks about the progress being made in hydrogen production and fuel cell development.

    I still have not heard anything about a major breakthrough in the efficiency of making hydrogen. It takes 250kWh of renewable energy to make enough hydrogen to go 330 mile in a hydrogen car or you can recharge an electric car multiple times and go over 1000 miles.

    Now if you say that we need zero emissions regardless of cost for Semi trucks, buses, trains, earth moving equipment, etc, then hydrogen maybe the best way to go. Lets use California as an example of the future, we have the highest gas taxes, some of the highest dmv fees, some of the highest income taxes, electric rates are double of what the rest of the country pays and the grid is unreliable, housing costs are extremely high, major companies are leaving, and a growing homelessness problem.
