    And, whether it was the author's intention of not, The Hydrogen Economy, fails, in my opinion, to provide its readers with enough technical information about hydrogen as a fuel, fuel cells and related developments for them to fully understand the book's radical and brilliant economic proposals. Aug 26,  · Jeremy Rifkin's book _The Hydrogen Economy_ explains the current fossil-fuel economy and how it got to where it is today and how it's going to be replaced. One interesting aspect of our modern system Rifkin points out is that with the advent of fossil-fuels current farmers put in more energy into producing their crops then they get out of them.3/5(8).

    Dec 14,  · Although titled the hydrogen economy the bulk of the book is about fossil based energy. This is a 9 chapter book and it doesn't start talking about "the hydrogen economy" until chapter 8. It has something interesting points about oil reserves and the macro economic effects, but this isn't what I was after in a book titled "the hydrogen economy"/5(4). Responding to the sustained interest in and controversial discussion of the prospects of hydrogen, this book strives to reflect on the perspectives of a hydrogen economy in light of the global energy challenge, in particular the question of how to meet the growing demand for transport energy in the long term and how to secure sustainable energy for transportation.

    Hydrogen is a carrier of energy, not a source (Box 1). It does not exist in a natural state on earth and must be manufactured using a hydrogen-rich compound as the raw material. Today, hydrogen is produced mainly through steam reforming of natural gas, but it can be extracted from other hydrocarbons by reforming or The Hydrogen Economy. Hydrogen offers a promising alternative for supplying clean and sustainable energy to meet increasing demands worldwide. However, materials are key to transforming the technology into a viable industry. Materials for the Hydrogen Economy describes the technical challenges and the current efforts in.

The Hydrogen Economy In The Hydrogen Economy, best-selling author Jeremy Rifkin takes us on an eye-opening journey into the next great commercial era in history. He envisions the dawn of a new economy powered by hydrogen that will fundamentally change the nature of our market, political and social institutions, just as coal and steam power.

Transportation, Distribution, and Storage of Hydrogen INTRODUCTION In any future hydrogen-based economy, key economic determinants will be the cost and safety of the fuel distribution system from the site of manufacture of the hydrogen to the end user.

The hydrogen economy could act as a replacement because of its higher energy density and its smaller negative impact on the environment. The hydrogen economy is limited because it is difficult to transport and store hydrogen. In addition, the dangers associated with hydrogen limit its practical application.

In a article on PhysOrg, writer Lisa Zyga referred to a study by fuel cell expert Ulf Bossel, who concluded a hydrogen economy is a “wasteful economy.” (See the attached chart.). Weaning the world off oil and turning it toward hydrogen is a promissory note for a safer world." Rifkin's international bestseller The Hydrogen Economy presents the clearest, most comprehensive case for moving ourselves away from the destructive and waning years of the oil era toward a.
