    A comparative hybrid life cycle assessment (LCA) was conducted to evaluate two different methods for hydrogen production. The environmental impacts from nuclear assisted thermochemical water splitting are compared to hydrogen production from natural gas steam reforming with CO2 sequestration. The results show that the two methods have significantly different impacts. The nuclear alterna... View full abstract»

    A transition to a low-carbon economy can be facilitated by CO2 capture and storage. This paper begins with an overview of CO2 capture and storage in the terrestrial biosphere, oceans, and deep geologic systems. The remainder focuses on what now appears to be the most promising option for large-scale deployment-capture and storage in deep geologic formations. A detailed descri... View full abstract»

  • Hydrogen Storage in Carbon Nanostructures: Possibilities and Challenges for Fundamental Molecular Simulations

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):1806 - 1814
    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    This paper discusses the potential for hydrogen storage in carbon nanostructures through a better understanding at the fundamental molecular level. The use of hydrogen as a fuel is limited in large part because of lack of progress in developing suitable storage and delivery systems. Materials that adsorb significant quantities of hydrogen are therefore urgently needed. The special hydrogen adsorbi... View full abstract»

    The establishment of a sustainable energy future is one of the most pressing tasks of mankind. With the exhaustion of fossil resources the energy economy will change from a chemical to an electrical base. This transition is one of physics, not one of politics. It must be based on proven technology and existing engineering experience. The transition process will take many years and should start soo... View full abstract»

    This paper presents an analysis of the potential system-wide energy and air emissions implications of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle (H 2-FCV) penetration into the U.S. light duty vehicle (LDV) fleet. The analysis uses the U.S. EPA MARKet ALlocation (MARKAL) technology database and model to simultaneously consider competition among alternative technologies and fuels, with a focus on the tra...

    There are several widely recognized tests for determining whether government should intervene in the marketplace. Does the public policy improve efficiency, equity, or stability, or does it pursue widely accepted social objectives? This paper examines the formulation of public policies toward new energy carriers such as hydrogen, in terms of what they ought to be and what they are in actuality. It... View full abstract»

    We examine a hydrogen transition strategy of using excess electric generation capacity in the U.S. midatlantic states during off-peak hours to produce hydrogen via electrolysis. Four different generation technologies are evaluated: combined-cycle natural gas, nuclear power, clean coal, and pulverized coal. We construct hydrogen-electricity price curves for each technology and evaluate the resultin... View full abstract»

    Despite its popularity as a "cure" for growing global energy needs, the "hydrogen economy" is decades away. In this paper, the authors consider the legal aspects of its possible development and extrapolate trends from recent events that may accelerate the arrival of the hydrogen economy, impediments that may delay its development, and the role laws and regulations might have in both. An attempt is... View full abstract»

    In the early days of electrical engineering, a unique group of visionaries joined together and realized the dream of Andrew Carnegie to join all major engineering societies of the day under one roof - the United Engineering Building, in the heart of New York City. Not only did Carnegie provide his leadership and vision to this endeavor but he was also responsible for much of the early financial su... View full abstract»
