In a post, yesterday, Tyler Hamilton of Clean Break starts as follows:
It's been a long time coming, but Ballard Power is finally reading the tea leaves and realizing that the dream of a fuel-cell car powered by hydrogen is a dream that only a million-dollar prototype can occupy. The Vancouver-based fuel cell company, an industry pioneer and leader, confirmed today that it was in talks with part owners Daimler AG and Ford Motor Co. about, well, it didn't say exactly.
. . . It kind of makes sense, at least at this point, that the auto companies embrace and drive forward the fuel-cell approach from hereon in.
. . . momentum is on the side of battery technology and the infrastructure to support it needs to be extended and upgraded, instead of created from scratch. . . . more
This has been my view since the start of The Energy Blog and I am glad to see someone else explicitly supporting my views.
