Yet today, as battery electric vehicles are starting to gain appreciable acceptance in the mainstream marketplace and static battery energy storage products are starting to flood the market, hydrogen fuel cell technology seems to be struggling to grow at all. How were analysts were wrong? What advantages do battery packs have over hydrogen fuel cells? And what does it mean for the future of both transportation and energy storage?

According to statistics, most drivers change their car once every six years, which is a pretty long period of time. To take the best out of your car in those six years, to save money and to avoid constant repairing, you’d better avoid ten mistakes many of us make when buying a car. One day you’ll probably decide to sell your car. That’s why you have to consider some important features. According to Paint supplier PPG Industries, white is the most popular car color in the US with 35 percent of all sold vehicles. It is followed by black with 17 percent, and silver and gray that both got a 12 percent popularity. In case you want to purchase some good old German luxury brands such as BMW or Mercedes-Benz, you have to be prepared to pay around $17,800 and $12,900 for ten years of maintenance accordingly. US popular brand Cadillac comes next with an average $12,500 maintenance cost for the same period of time. Additional airbags, a passenger sensing system that can tell the size of the person in the seat and save smaller children in case of a crash, auto-dimming mirrors to reduce the glare coming from headlights at night, head restraints and ABS are some of the things you don’t want to save money at. Make a check-list of features you need to check and think of where you’ll be driving your new vehicle. Try driving on the highway and park in uncomfortable conditions if that’s what you know you’ll have to do in the future. Examine everything to help yourself make the right decision. Don’t be afraid to miss “the deal of a lifetime.” You must have noticed those come up now and then, so you shouldn’t let them pressure you into making a wrong financial decision that will affect your budget for years. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS You don’t think about resale value. 0:32 Car maintenance can be expensive. 1:46 You pay for optional items. 2:50 You buy a brand new car. 3:33 You buy a car that is too big or too small. 4:03 You can’t choose between car’s prestige and technical characteristics. 4:34 You don’t examine the car. 5:19 You miss advantageous offers and discounts. 6:08 You don’t try to lower the price. 6:30 You’re in a hurry. 6:51 SUMMARY -First, the car brand matters: there are brands that are more or less popular among drivers. Second, you need to think about the vehicle specifications and the engine. Third, don’t forget about its color. -Think of how much of your family budget car maintenance can make, and decide if you want to spend that much on your vehicle after you’ve purchased it. -Some drivers don’t smoke inside their cars. In this case, they don’t need an ashtray. An additional corrosion treatment is useless as well because cars already have an anti-corrosion treatment. -The best choice is a car model that is no more than three years old and already well-known. -Try to predict how many times you’re going to travel by car, how many passengers will be there, and so on. -A premium class car will give you better safety, high performance and increased comfort their manufacturers guarantee. -Gather as much information as possible at reliable websites and among your friends, consult an independent specialist, and test drive your chosen car. -The best time to buy a car starts in December and reaches its peak in March. -Try to call or send emails to different dealerships saying you have a better offer and asking if they can beat it. -Spend enough time to gather information, consulting specialists, and weighing the pros and cons.

Eine neue Ära der Mobilität beginnt: Der BMW Hydrogen 7.Als weltweit erster Automobilhersteller präsentiert BMW ein mit Wasserstoff (engl. Hydrogen) angetriebenes Fahrzeug. Der BMW Hydrogen 7 mit Wasserstoff-Verbrennungsmotor ist eine Limousine der 7er Reihe wird von einem 191 kW/260 PS starken Zwölfzylinder-Motor angetrieben und beschleunigt in 9,5 Sekunden von null auf 100 km/h. Die Höchstgeschwindigkeit wird elektronisch auf 230 km/h limitiert.
The video showcases progress being made in commercializing fuel cell products across Ballard's key markets and includes interesting case studies (material handling at Walmart and distributed generation at Toyota).
Honda's guide to how the technology in its hydrogen fuel cell production vehicle - the FCX Clarity - works.
"Fuel cell cars, which run on electricity produced from compressed Hydrogen, emit zero harmful emissions and could be the future of motoring. They can be just as fast, practical, and can travel as far as a conventional petrol or diesel engine car, but the technology is very different. And importantly, the only thing that comes out of the exhaust is water vapour.
Rather than having a petrol or diesel tank like a conventional car, the fuel cell car has a tank that stores compressed Hydrogen as a gas. Hydrogen is used as an energy carrier, so that the fuel cell car can produce its own electricity onboard, rather than storing it in batteries.
This compressed Hydrogen is expanded and then fed into the fuel cell stack. The fuel cell stack is like a tiny electric power station. Inside it, the Hydrogen combines with Oxygen from the air to generate electricity and water as a byproduct. Water vapour is the fuel cell car's only emission.
The electricity created inside the fuel cell stack is used to power the electric motor, which is, in turn, used to drive the car. The fuel cell stack is made up of hundreds of individual cells stacked together like a loaf of bread. In fact, each cell is like a sandwich, with a Membrane Electrode Assembly (or MEA) between two separators (or Bi-Polar plates). The MEA is made up of a Proton Exchange Membrane, or PEM, which sits between Hydrogen and Oxygen electrode layers and gas diffusion layers.
In each cell, Hydrogen gas passes over the Hydrogen electrode. Each Hydrogen atom is converted into a Hydrogen ion in a catalytic reaction, releasing an electron in the process. The Hydrogen ions then pass through the electrolytic membrane, where they bond with Oxygen ions straight from the atmosphere. The previously emitted electrons from the Hydrogen molecules arrive at the Oxygen electrode via an external circuit. The released electrons create a flow of direct electrical current in the external circuit, and water is generated at the Oxygen electrode as a byproduct. This water is drained from the system and exits the car as water vapour via the exhaust.
Because the electricity is generated from Hydrogen and Oxygen, no Carbon Dioxide or other polluants are emitted from the car. It's the ultimate in clean performance.
Honda's FCX Clarity is the world's first production fuel cell car and is already on sale in the US and Japan."
