Economics of Hydrogen, II
By Arnold Kling
Lynne Kiesling quotes an engineering analysis of hydrogen as a fuel source for automobiles.
I can assure you that there is no way that spending heat energy to make hydrogen to be burned to make heat energy can be anything but a losing proposition… thermodynamically, and hence – with certainty – economically, this is a loser.
For Discussion. Has there been any analysis showing that the cost of creating, storing, and using hydrogen as fuel could be less than the value of the energy the hydrogen would provide? Or is all of the research focused on technical feasibility as opposed to economic feasibility?
