Airbus Refines & Develops ZEROe H-Planes

   Zero Emissions, Hydrogen Powered Flying                                                                                 Source:  Airbus Three Concept Planes Airbus plans to develop and deploy the world's first zero emissions, commercial aircraft to carry passengers by 2035.  Its zero emissions, carbon neutral, hydrogen powered aircraft are called ZEROe.  Airbus is now finalizing decisions on which technologies to use for the next-G aircraft and which vehicle to go to market with first.  There are three concept planes under development:  a blended wing body (BWB), a turboprop and a turbofan powered aircraft.  All three planes use hydrogen as their primary power source. Delta Wing Model At the 2022 Singapore Air Show, Airbus is showcasing its twin engine, blended wing model with its integrated vertical tails.  The plane has a longer, wider cabin, lots of windows and access doors at the front of the fuselage. These are new refinements that Airbus has incorporated since the concept

World's 1st Hydrogen-Solar-E-Bike

  World First From the Netherlands & Australia                                             Source:  Studio MOM LAVO   Hydrogen, Solar Powered Battery, Studio MOM E-Bike Dutch e-bike manufacturer Studio MOM  and hybrid hydrogen battery maker LAVO of Australia have invented a world first - a hydrogen powered electric bike that can transport heavy cargo over long distances.  MOM says the hydrogen battery is much lighter than lithium-ion batteries typically used in e-bikes.  As a result, the cargo bike can carry heavier loads for longer distances with zero emissions. Breakthrough Battery Technology The LAVO hydrogen battery, developed at the University of New South Wales, uses solar energy to distill hydrogen from water.  The hydrogen is absorbed into a patented metal hydride and converts into battery power.  The e-bike is the first commercial application of the battery.  MOM integrates the battery into the bike's modular frame that comes together like legos New Green Travel on Gre

Renewable Energy - a Great Bet

 Nuclear Fusion Source:  Tokamak Energy - Nuclear Fusion Reactor Global Nuclear Fusion Projects with Promise It's hotter than the sun.  UK based Tokamak Energy wants to be the first in the world to produce commercial electricity from fusion power by 2030.  The company has heated a plasma of hydrogen to 27 million degrees in its new experimental reactor.  That temperature is hotter than the core of the sun.  In 2019, it's going to test the system at 180 million degrees. Why Nuclear Fusion May Be the Right Fit for Global Energy Needs Proponents say nuclear fusion could make other types of electricity generation obsolete.  The reason is it can produce large amounts of electricity from very small amounts of hydrogen.  A plant the size of the UK's Tokamak would produce 1 gigawatt of electricity a year.  That's enough to power 700,000 US homes. Renewable and Green Nuclear fusion has very little fuel needs.  Greenhouse emissions are very low. And there's very
