The latest and the most interesting source of the energy generation and the only one that is important to invest in - is the hydrogen technology. Hydrogen, working on water, wind and sun, is a secure, inexhaustible, emission-free fuel for the consumer electronics, heat and electricity production, airplanes and the next generation of the highway vehicles.
Hydrogen was first invented as a distinct substance by an English chemist and physicist Henry Cavendish in 1766. He was the first to describe the composition of water as a combination of hydrogen and oxygen. Before, the natural gas was discovered, hydrogen had been used in combination with gaseous products to bring warmth and light into America and Europe at early 1800's to mid 1900's. In the 20th century, people started using Hydrogen as a key component in the manufacture of ammonia, methanol, gasoline, and heating oil. The NASA has been using it since 1958 as a rocket fuel and an electricity source via fuel cells. It is a high time to use it for our everyday use, is not? The Hydrogen safe handling is rather suitable for this.
Today's reality is striving to modern, safe and environmentally friendly energy resources. Industries worldwide start producing hydrogen working vehicles, airplanes, fuel cells and other products. Iceland has come to the commitment to be the first in hydrogen economy by 2030. Japan produces hydrogen trucks; BMW is into liquid hydrogen passenger cars, Ballard Power Systems produces fuel cell transit buses in Chicago and Vancouver. Today's oil crisis is nothing but the desire to earn money and to leave the opportunities of the alternative energy for the future. However, in a few years, most of the companies are to understand all the profitability and interest connected with hydrogen use and oil wars, and misunderstanding of the countries on this basis will be left far behind.
Germany, Europe, Japan, Canada, the US, Australia, Iceland and several other countries have made the hydrogen production and relative products the number one research in their economy and that is for good. If it is not too late to change the ecological situation for better - every person in the world is to have a cost effective and ecosystem friendly energy source in the near future.
The total conversion into the hydrogen system all over the world may take from ten to fifty years and, probably, even more in some regions of our planet, but when it happens, it will only make the life of the future generations healthier and happier than the one we have now.
