Die Kommentare in dem Artikel sind vielfach auch sehr interessant, teilweise mit sehr detailreichen Einsichten, die mir vorher so noch gar nicht bekannt waren.
Auszüge davon nachfolgend:
This reveals the obvious. You can’t refuel a Hydrogen car at home (or anywhere else other than the filling station). Hence the loaner vehicles Toyota/Hyundai will hand out.
A supercharger station could also blow up (not sure how, but let’s go there anyway) and we all continue to charge our EV’s at home, or at work or at the store or at the camp ground… you get the idea.
The more complicated the fueling system, the more likely that things will go wrong. When you are dealing with a highly flammable gas under intense pressure, these things will happen. In essence, H2 stations are even more complicated than gasoline stations, and both are more complicated than Supercharger stations.
Other things that the hydrogen industry tries to keep a secret…
- A typical hydrogen production station of 130 kg per day can only fuel 26 FCEVs per day or 4 Class 8 trucks
- The third or fourth car in a fueling queue has to wait 15 or 20 minutes for the refueling tanks to re pressurize to 700 bar
- Many/most gas stations do not have sufficient land area to accommodate a hydrogen dispensing operation for just 25 vehicles per day
- A typical hydrogen production facility that could produce 130 kg of hydrogen per day (to support 270 vehicles at 50 km per day) costs $2.9 million USD - not including land costs
- The hydrogen tanks in the vehicles have an expiry date rendering the entire vehicle scrap at that point
- Hydrogen fuel stack performance degrades over time and would have to be replaced or more likely the vehicle would be scrapped due to the cost
- Due to the danger, it is unlikely that hydrogen production stations would ever be allowed in built up areas

Simply put, I can spend half the price (which the cost will only go down over time) of a BEV on a solar array at home to power my home and vehicle completely free for the life of the vehicle. BEVs allow consumers to be power independent, where-as hydrogen fuel vehicles will keep us tied to a fuel-cell industry (ala the oil industry, albeit cleaner).
Oder dieser Kommentar:
As an analytical chemist for over 20 years dealing with gas analyses by GC and GC/MS I have been harping for a decade now about the dangers of using hydrogen as a fuel and H2 proponents kept saying the risk was insignificant but its extremely difficult to prevent leaks as the H2 molecule is so tiny like helium it diffuses thru the tiniest of cracks, etc and with no odor it requires continuous monitoring for leaks which is another added cost. Terrorists wont target the vehicles they will target hundreds of thousands of expected fuel depots because they are not infallible when stored as a liquid cryogenically and this isn’t a problem in Japan but it sure as hell is in America. Thats why I’ve been so mad at Japan to put Americans at greater risk and its why i’ll never again buy a Honda or Toyota car. Not nice japan. Go to heck Toyota. It’s why I also fear using H2 for trucking.
Und als Anspielung an den Zeppelin:
is this Hydrogen’s „Hindenburg moment“? ouch… I assume (because I’m skeptical AF) that the corporations want us to use a fuel we can’t make on our own so they can sell it to us.
Dann noch das hier:
The city of Hamburg recently cancelled a trial of hydrogen buses because they didn’t want to sore hydrogen in heavily populated areas.
Oil companies love Hydrogen. It lets them give the appearance of doing something to combat climate change, and they used it to push battery powered cars out of the competition back in 1999, so it bought them 20 years of oil sales. Hydrogen is a false choice. No one serious about combating climate change would adopt the Hydrogen model. It is horribly inefficient and designed to keep oil in the game as long as possible.
Und schließlich diese schlichte Zusammenfassung:
HYDROGEN IS DANGEROUS
