Your response to my editorial in the January issue is gratifying, reassuring, and worrisome. Gratifying because the quantity and quality of your responses tells me I am not the only one who reads my column. Reassuring because I no longer worry that the American entrepreneur is uninterested in saving energy. Worrisome because it is still possible to contend that something or someone has dammed the sea of innovation ready to solve our energy problem.
My wife often says that no good deed goes unpunished, and such is your fate this month for I’m planning to do two editorials, one here and one on our web page (www.energyandpowermanagement). Please click on the editorial link. Read on here for a few thoughts that I plan to share, both mine and some from the many letters I received this month. Go to the web site for the full text (lightly edited) of the letters.
Yes, you are right, Mr Heslin, energy efficiency is quite a concern, but nobody knows the right solution until now. The only efficient way to reach energy efficiency can go, as you mention it already, via the people (consumers). I would like to draw your attention to a presentation I am going to give at the World Renewable Energy Congress [WREN] in Fremantle, Australia on February 6th:
Please take your time to have a look at the slides:
• Direct Hydrogen Production from Renewables (without electricity)
• Four steps to a new reliable, cleaner and decentralized Energy Supply based on Hydrogen + Fuel Cells
• Revolution in the Garage (1-3)
The idea is, to involve the public with the motivation to “earn” money with their car, producing electricity with a fuel cell system, powered by hydrogen, produced by renewable energies, while standing idle.
