Publisher: PennWell Books

About this book
This book is authored by Rebecca L. Busby. ""Hydrogen and Fuel Cells: A Comprehensive Guide"" explains why hydrogen has emerged as an essential area for research and technology development worldwide. It explores the forces driving the market for hydrogen-powered fuel cells, as well as the technical and economic barriers that could derail a transition toward hydrogen energy systems. The book reviews hydrogen's history, and discusses current and future applications for hydrogen fuel cells. It also explains in straightforward language how hydrogen is produced, stored, and transported, and it discusses the economics of these activities and their environmental impact. The book's appendixes provide more technical details, such as cost calculations. It is written in easy to read language rather than technical jargon. It offers a comprehensive overview of the hydrogen economy concept. It lets you develop a better understanding on the timely topic of hydrogen and its place in the world's future energy mix along with fossil fuels and renewable resources.

Hydrogen and Fuel Cells, Emerging Technologies and Applications

Creator: Bent Sørensen | Science - 2012

The book not only describes the "how" and "where" aspects of hydrogen fuels cells usage, but also the obstacles and benefits of its use, as well as the social implications (both economically and environmental).

Publisher: Academic Press

About this book
A hydrogen economy, in which this one gas provides the source of all energy needs, is often touted as the long-term solution to the environmental and security problems associated with fossil fuels. However, before hydrogen can be used as fuel on a global scale we must establish cost effective means of producing, storing, and distributing the gas, develop cost efficient technologies for converting hydrogen to electricity (e.g. fuel cells), and creating the infrastructure to support all this. Sorensen is the only text available that provides up to date coverage of all these issues at a level appropriate for the technical reader. The book not only describes the "how" and "where" aspects of hydrogen fuels cells usage, but also the obstacles and benefits of its use, as well as the social implications (both economically and environmental). Written by a world-renowned researcher in energy systems, this thoroughly illustrated and cross-referenced book is an excellent reference for researchers, professionals and students in the field of renewable energy.Updated sections on PEM fuel cells, Molten carbonate cells, Solid Oxide cells and Biofuel cellsUpdated material to reflect the growing commercial acceptance of stationary and portable fuel cell systems, while also recognizing the ongoing research in automotive fuel cell systemsA new example of a regional system based on renewable energy sources reflects the growing international attention to uses of renewable energy as part of the energy gridExamples of life cycle analysis of environmental and social impacts

Tomorrow's Energy, Hydrogen, Fuel Cells, and the Prospects for a Cleaner Planet

Creator: Peter Hoffmann, Byron Dorgan | Science - 2012-02-03

In this new edition of his pioneering book Tomorrow's Energy, Peter Hoffmann makes the case for hydrogen as the cornerstone of a new energy economy.

Publisher: MIT Press

About this book
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. An invisible, tasteless, colorless gas, it can be converted to nonpolluting, zero-emission, renewable energy. When burned in an internal combustion engine, hydrogen produces mostly harmless water vapor. It performs even better in fuel cells, which can be 2.5 times as efficient as internal-combustion engines. Zero-emission hydrogen does not contribute to CO2-caused global warming. Abundant and renewable, it is unlikely to be subject to geopolitical pressures or scarcity concerns. In this new edition of his pioneering book Tomorrow's Energy, Peter Hoffmann makes the case for hydrogen as the cornerstone of a new energy economy. Hoffmann covers the major aspects of hydrogen production, storage, transportation, fuel use, and safety. He explains that hydrogen is not an energy source but a carrier, like electricity, and introduces the concept of "hydricity," the essential interchangeability of electricity and hydrogen. He brings the hydrogen story up to date, reporting on the latest developments, including new hydrogen and fuel-cell cars from GM, Daimler, BMW, Honda, and Toyota. He describes recent political controversies, including Obama administration Energy Secretary (and Nobel laureate in Physics) Steven Chu's inexplicable dismissal of hydrogen--which puts him at odds with major automakers, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and others. Our current energy system is a complex infrastructure, and phasing in hydrogen will take effort and money. But if we consider the real costs of fossil fuels--pollution and its effects, international tensions over gas and oil supplies, and climate change--we would be wise to promote its development.
