Fusion proces: Because of a phenomenon known as quantum tunneling, the hydrogen atoms smash into each other and fuse into helium.
Is Fusion the answer for the new energy world? Scientists create hydrogen plasma, what the sun is made of.
Max Planck researchers finally succeeded in building this breakthrough reactor. And for the first time, the scientists have successfully created hydrogen plasma, the key component to nuclear fusion, and held it in a contained environment. Read More
Fuel cells (and perhaps other technologies which use hydrogen) fill certain niches in which batteries cannot compete favorably and the opposite is also true.
When I first realized that the world is transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy, I fell in love with hydrogen technologies.
Splitting the most naturally abundant compound in the world, H2O, would be the ideal thing to fuel the future. However, there are really dangerous details to how this water must be split and the energy requirement is quite ridiculous.
Scotland is changing towards renewables. Renewable energy is getting bigger than nuclear power in the green country. Records show renewables generated 32% more electricity than any other single source. Read More
Nuclear Fusion is inspired by the sun. Is this the holy grail at the end of the energy process?
Lockheed Martin believesfusion energyis the future. In their opinion fusion energy is the ultimate form of renewable power. For scientists and engineers the sun is their inspiration because it is the biggest natural fusion reactor we know.
