or perhaps known as centralized vs decentralized control. you gotta use our H2 or our gasoline, or fossil fuel or our electricity instead of collecting your own electrons at much less cost.
$2.75 trillion revenue for 11 fossil fuel companies last year. electric companies complaining about 1% drop in revenue stream due to renewables, so slow the tranistion of wealth and power in any way I love my (PH)EV and make part of the electricity I use in it every day Until you get either a starship and jump to the eagle nebula (pillars of creation) or a scoopship and dive/collect jupiters atmosphere, H2 will e a very inefficient method of running vehicles. many folks have huge sunk costs (already invested) intellectually and financially in fool cells and need to die off before the idea goes away -------------------------------------------- On Tue, 7/29/14, Mark Abramowitz via EV <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: Subject: Re: [EVDL] Tesla might Supercharge EVs to regain 400mi in 15min for7 credits To: "Marion Hakanson" <hakan...@easystreet.net>, "Electric Vehicle Discussion List" <email@example.com> Date: Tuesday, July 29, 2014, 10:24 AM Sent from my iPhone > On Jul 28, 2014, at 10:52 PM, Marion Hakanson via EV <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > I have a cousin who lives in Italy. They own a small Fiat van which runs on both methane (compressed) and regular gasoline; Apparently it costs the equivalent of $20 to fill the methane tank, and about $100 to fill the gas tank (which they'll do if they're in the hinterlands and can't find a methane station). > > If most H2 comes from methane (natural gas), why not just burn the methane directly, instead of converting it multiple times (and losing something at every step), so you can feed it to a fuel cell? For the same reason there is a ZEV mandate and you want a power plant to burn the natural gas and give you electricity to run your battery electric. Emissions.

For example, running the model for Idaho, the electrical grid is more than 50% renewable and less than 30% coal. Those assumptions for New York would be very wrong.
