The solutions suggested for the car energy-storage problem are the use of an improved version of the battery for power storage or the use of hydrogen as fuel. The weight of a battery for a long traction milage is prohibitively high. To use hydrogen as a fuel for cars, the problems of easy and cheap production and safe storage need to be solved. The chemistry for hydrogen production is outlined and the total power demand for the system is discussed. A comparison is made between the weight of raw materials necessary for producing hydrogen fuel and the petroleum weight for identical heat of combustion.
