The advantages of Hydrogen fuel are many
- Its available in plenty.It is present in water.So no chances of its scarcity or being exhausted like fossil fuels.It is the most abundant element in the universe, constituting about 93% of all atoms.
- When combusted with Oxygen, it is converted into water.So no chances of pollution and other curses like Global Warming
- It can be used in running motors,producing electricity or in domestic uses.It is used in space programmes as well
- It yields three times more energy than ordinary fossil fuels.
- The fuel cells are compact and lightweight--not overly bulky or heavy,thus light weight vehicles may be produced
- High Cost:Initial technology involved is costly.It costs around $1 million to produce a Hydrogen fulled car.
- Lack of a hydrogen refueling network:The refueling option is difficult due to scarcity of Hydrogen fuel stations
- Initial response:It is difficult for the manufacturers to convince the consumers to switch over to this newly developed technology.
