    Except for the Solar panels, none of this stuff is mass produced yet. So it's all expensive. Of course, the US is spending'/borrowing $200 MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY (http://costofwar.com) on the wars. So its clear- if the US wanted to be energy independent it would be. But it's more fun to bomb wedding parties and have perpetual war.

    Cutting the ribbon (April 21st) at the recently opened True Zero hydrogen-fuel station in the San Joaquin Valley IRVINE, Calif., April 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Significantly larger numbers of electric fuel-cell cars will go on sale in California this year following decades of hard work by thousands of automotive engineers, policymakers, and government-agency personnel. The simultaneous launch of the True Zero (www.truezero.com) Network, a series of hydrogen-charge stations being established by start-up FirstElement Fuel Inc. (www.firstelementfuel.com), will help eliminate the major roadblock facing these types of cars: anxiety over finding a reliable place to charge. "In the past the lack of a fueling network kept fuel-cell vehicles off the road, and has been hampering activity in recent years," explained Joel Ewanick, chief executive officer of Irvine-based FirstElement Fuel. "Soon, a short stop for a four-minute charge of True Zero hydrogen will enable drivers of all-electric fuel-cell cars to confidently get to their destination without the worry of range anxiety." The first 15 True Zero stations (photos at www.truezero.com/images/) were brought online at an unprecedented speed and scale throughout Silicon Valley, the greater Los Angeles area, Lake Tahoe area, and Harris Ranch in the San Joaquin Valley. An additional four stations are expected to be online by year's end. The projects are being funded in large part by grants from the California Energy Commission, South Coast AQMD and Bay Area AQMD, as well as partnerships with automotive firms Toyota and Honda who are first to market with fuel-cell electric vehicles. This network gives confidence to the hydrogen community that the industry can quickly bring on line the required stations to meet the demand and timing of the OEM's.

    Mar. 27, 2016 TOKYO — Toshiba Corp says its “H2One” stand-alone hydrogen energy supply system has been completed in the “Henna (Weird) Hotel,” a hotel run by Huis Ten Bosch Co Ltd in Sasebo City, Nagasaki Prefecture. The Henna Hotel is known for its robot reception staff and is located in an area adjacent to the Huis Ten Bosch theme park. The H2One was introduced in the “West Arm” building, which was constructed in the second construction phase. The H2One is a CO2-free stand-alone hydrogen energy supply system that is based on Toshiba’s unique hydrogen EMS (energy management system) and uses renewable energy and hydrogen to stably supply electricity. It consists of a solar power generation system, storage battery, hydrogen production equipment, hydrogen storage alloy tank and pure hydrogen fuel cell.

    With hydrogen fuel cells, a commercial, electric drone could spend up to two hours hanging in the sky, be refueled almost instantly after landing, and then take another 120 minutes in the air. Such performance beats batteries hands down. Intelligent Energy attached a hydrogen fuel cell to a DJI Matrice 100 quadcopter. The fuel cell and its fuel weigh just 3.5 pounds, which is lighter than the battery it replaces. Hydrogen fuel sometimes comes with unique risks, but the National Hydrogen Association thinks those risks are overblown. The company has been making hydrogen fuel cells since 2001, and recently demonstrated their drone on BBC’s Click. Intelligent Energy isn’t the first to make such a device: Boeing and others have their own fuel-cell drones. What makes this design stand out is the simple reality of it: a normal quadcopter, with a new power source, hovering in a gymnasium as though it was supposed to do this all along...snip MORE: https://www.elektormagazine.com/news/down-with-the-batteries-i-m-flying-fuel-cell Watch a hydrogen powered drone fly BBC News-Click UK
