Anyone have knowledge about the realistic chance they have of achieving 1.5 volts to make hydrogen production with water the same cost as natural gas?

Matt; I would be very cautious of anyone promising to produce energy for less cost than natural gas. Any time you convert energy from one form to another there is a significant loss which hypers conveniently “forget” especially if it involves breaking chemical bonds which hydrogen from water does. If you can generate electricity cheaply it makes much more sense to just use the electricity,,,No?

Hi Matt, With regard to Frank’s comment, any form of electricity production is a result of converting energy from one form to another, and burning natural gas is breaking chemical bonds in an exothermic process. Therefore, I think it’s clear from Frank’s argument and lack of supporting evidence that he is not an expert in this field. With regard to your question: There are two distinct questions here, whether they can achieve 1.5 V open circuit voltage and whether it will be commercially viable. I think that they will achieve 1.5 V OC because they have achieved 1.2 V based… Read more »

GEOFF; Please note I did not claim any expertise in anything….You raise strawman argument of converting natural gas to electricity,,,,Something I did not imply or should you infer. Water power to electricity consumes no fuel nor does it involve chemical bond breaking. As for Nobel laureates 1000 times Al Gore =0. Consensus in crap =crap.

Clearly you are not highly educated. If you cannot claim expertise, or even general knowledge, why do you feel the need to share your ignorant opinion? Thank you for making the world dumber.
