Hydrogen As A Renewable DIY Energy Fuel?
As a Renewable DIY Energy fuel, is HHO (Hydrogen), a viable option? HHO production is a bit more difficult to research than other forms of renewable energy, because it still seems to be very much in the experimental stage, certainly as far as a vehicle fuel for the domestic consumer is concerned.
Hydrogen is a renewable fuel in that when it burns, its only by product is water, and water is used in the electrolytic process to make it, so what you put in, in raw material terms, you get back again. Saying that, electrical energy is still needed for the hydrogen making process.
The experimental vehicles that are around at the moment, running solely on HHO, have a very limited range, similar to that of an electric car. The problem seems, again, to be fuel storage. The size of any fuel storage vessel that can comfortably be accommodated within the confines of a domestic family saloon car is strictly limited. HHO as a fuel needs a lot of space.
HHO, maybe a fuel of the future, but when it comes to powering our homes, and our domestic vehicles, I think it’s going to have a tough job competing with renewable energy in the form of solar or wind power. I know that electric cars have to be plugged in to a power source to be recharged, but that power source can easily be obtained from a home based renewable energy resource.
Also I think that it would be just a bit impractical for the average person to have a Hydrogen generator in their garage, with all the associated equipment, that would produce enough HHO to run the family cars, bearing in mind that Hydrogen has to be pressurised to about 5000psi to be able to store it in any usable quantity, and also a substantial amount of power is required in the HHO production process, and of course, a means of combustion is still required. The fact remains, that for domestic consumer use, and certainly for DIY renewable energy applications, HHO is just not in the running.
For industrial use, judging by the research, and results already being obtained by some individual researchers, and users, HHO is providing some huge benefits, but I think that for any practical purpose, HHO will stay in the commercial, industrial, and military sector.
Saying all that, it’s possible that HHO may be of use as a supplementary intermediary fuel for domestic vehicles, while we are waiting for the electric car to be available in a cheap enough form for everyone to be able to afford. There are many DIY HHO kits and instructions on the market, that advertise a significant increase in fuel efficiency when HHO is introduced into the combustion process as a supplemental fuel. If the benefits of HHO as a supplementary fuel are real, then of course it’s certainly worth a go. These small HHO generators seem very easy to make and install. So, as a DIY project on a very small scale, and as a supplementary fuel, HHO generation may be viable.
