Elizabeth Swann - Jules Verne - World Hydrogen Challenge

 

 

RACE AGAINST TIME: This could have been another of Jules Verne's titles. But it is not a work of science fiction, it is a man-made problem today that even the master storyteller would have had trouble predicting. Despite our scientists telling us the global warming is at a crucial tipping point, world leaders are allowing the use of fossil fuels to superheat the planet with dire consequences. Jules was adamant that hydrogen would be a source of power for mankind in the future he envisioned. In our view he was bang on the money. Green hydrogen offers us a sustainable future, based on splitting water using electrolyzers, to recombine for heat or electricity. We can use renewable solar and wind power, to create a circular economy, without CO2 and other harmful gases and particulates. This clean energy source can drive our automobiles and ships, as a major brake on climate change. What is holding us back and why? The technology exists today! Given the opportunity, we would like to prove it to you. If it is possible to complete the build of the Elizabeth Swann above by 2024, it will be the 150th anniversary of his prediction in his 1874 book: The Mysterious Island.

 

 

 

 

Fuel cells are not new, but their recent development has improved performance, in the recombination of hydrogen with oxygen to create electricity and water.

 

Fuel cells are the basis of modern batteries, to replace, or operate alongside lithium battery technology.

 

Fuel cells can operate on hydrogen peroxide, compressed gas, liquid, ammonia or methanol.

 

Fuel cells can be recycled.

 

But the most important thing about fuel cells, is that whatever hydrogen chemistry is used, it can be made from renewable green energy, solar and wind power - sustainably.

 

The development of fuel cells is a significant part of the World Hydrogen Challenge. This includes the Jules Verne Hydrogen Trophy, where sport improves the breed.
