Backing hydrogen fuel cells
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.
