Example text

Hydrogen-fueled micropower could improve the lives of people dependent on primitive fuels. Many programs are under way to install solar and wind energy equipment in the developing world. Eventually, hydrogen fuel cells and other micropower stations could deliver energy services to the world’s poor using their abundant renewable energy as a source of pollution-free hydrogen fuel. Industry observer Jeremy Rifkin, in his book The Hydrogen Economy, foresees a world where the price of fuel cells could fall to the point where they’ll be practical for installation in poor villages and cities.

Investment in environmentally sound economic growth in emerging markets. Efficiency as a route to pollution control By any measure, hydrogen fuel cells are more efficient than traditional power generation plants based on combustion of fossil fuels and much more efficient than the lowly car engine. Efficiency matters—not just from the perspective of saving money, but also because consuming less energy reduces the emissions associated with burning hydrocarbon fuels. Hydrogen fuel cells can be applied in our transportation sectors for automotive power and in stationary plants for power generation on just about any scale, from homes to utilities.

New technologies being developed include hand-held infrared video cameras that can detect methane leaks from a distance and display the gas as a visible cloud. An international effort is under way to capture methane emissions. The United States plans to invest up to $53 million to promote methane harvesting over five years, working with Australia, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Ukraine. Canada and Russia could join the program. Government actions Even before the conclusion of the global warming studies, the United Nations had initiated the Kyoto Protocol, a treaty that mandates reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
