Back­ing hy­dro­gen fuel cells

Sentinel-Review (Woodstock) - - OPINION -

Jim Merriam nails it again with his col­umn. Why not sup­port a car pow­ered by a hy­dro­gen fuel cell that can travel far­ther than any cur­rent plug-in elec­tric ve­hi­cle and can be re­fu­elled in as lit­tle as three min­utes? Fur­ther­more, as the en­ergy to power the mo­tor is cre­ated by hy­dro­gen re­act­ing with oxy­gen, the only waste prod­uct is wa­ter vapour. While elec­tric cars can see their range fig­ures tum­ble in cold weather, as bat­tery chem­istry strug­gles to cope, no such is­sue ex­ists with fuel-cell ve­hi­cles. With both types, in­fra­struc­ture sup­port is lim­ited. In On­tario, with our cold win­ters and the price of elec­tric­ity about to sky­rocket. I would put my in­vest­ment in hy­dro­gen fuel cells.
