Yes, that reference is interesting in a general way, but in terms of specific implementation as an affordable fuel - the only real choice would seem to be hydronium (as a cation). It is a natural component of water. Catch 22. The hydronium cation is not stable and quickly neutralizes, BUT maybe they have found a way to stabilize it? Here is an paper on hydronium metastability. "Metastable hydronium ions in UV-irradiated ice" https://aip.scitation.org/doi/abs/10.1063/1.4768418 Curiously, since the topic of electrets came up, that could possibly be another way. Given that Thomas is not pleading for investment, it could be that he is being somewhat less than open in the details, but why publish anything at all? Maybe he is looking for the rare investor who is actively looking for such a solution and can fill in the blanks.
