residential electricity

My friends and I were discussing the launch of the world's first hydrogen fuel cell train by Alstom. They took the technology for this from Hydrogenics, which is a developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and fuel cell products based on water electrolysis and proton exchange membrane technology. According to them, Hydrogen vehicles have 100% zero emissions. Hydrogen technology will advance in the future to such a point that fuel cells become a viable alternative.

My question is, can't this be implemented in producing residential electricity? The power plants used to produce electricity need energy which is mostly taken from fossil fuels like coal. The burning of the fossil fuels puts a lot of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere which leads to Global Warming. So if hydrogen technology can be implemented in producing the electricity at home, it can lead to a cleaner environment.

Your thoughts on this? Is there are projects going on to implement this?

CO2 is not causing AGW.

Fuel cells have been in development for quite a while, even to the extent that the technology is around in several applications. The problem is that it has not developed as originally envisioned and progress has been slow. I personally lost track of the progress of the technology about 10 years ago and have not heard much since then. However, the answer to your question is yes. It will play a role sometime in the future.

Along these same lines, small nuclear packages will be available in the future as well and are closer to being commercially available to the public. This too is a future fuel source.

My girlfriend and I were discussing climate change and why I get so hot.

Run this by AOC.

H2 is mostly made from natural gas, although quite CO2 efficient, environmentists are strongly opposed to H2 unless it can be made via renewable sources. As far as electricity, you could just use highly efficient nat gas generation, and due to the purity of natural gas vs. coal, you could easily recover the CO2 if you are hell bent on CO2 reduction. But again the environmentalists want to communicate to the public that methane use is a crime against humanity that must be banned.

I believe that the technology the OP was referring to was utilizing sea water as the source. The technology is viable but decades away from being ready for a commercial launch at the utility level.
