The world is ready for Electric Vehicles
I was surprised to see the USA at the low-end with only a 29% acceptance rate while Europe is much higher with Italy at over 70%
Going electric is the answer, but I still think hydrogen makes more sense if we can manufacture it cheaply in the long run. There are a number of new technologies that do this.
Hydrogen fuel cells have a far greater energy storage density than lithium-ion batteries, offering a significant range advantage for electric vehicles while also being lighter and occupying less space.
In addition, charging takes much less time and does not require homeowners to have chargers at home…
Lastly, and this is the kicker for me, most of the electricity we are currently charging our EV’s with come from coal-burning power plants!? So what did we gain from that other than an artificially lower price in the short run?
Don’t get me wrong, getting away from fossil fuels is absolutely the goal, but Hydrogen has to be part of the answer?
What do you think?
