Hydrogen Car Japan and Hydrogen Fueling System Predicted to Increases to $17.7 by 2025

As of March 2010, hydrogen car Japan research marketing firm, Fuji-Keizai Group, projects a 99% increase in their use of hydrogen fuel cells up till 2025, which could reach up to $17.7 billion USD increase, along with the recent and fast discovery of hydrogen generation technologies.

One of such discoveries is the graphene hydrogen storage solution developed by PhD student Javad Rafiee.

“Rafiee used a combination of mechanical grinding, plasma treatment, and annealing to engineer the atomic structure of graphene to maximize its hydrogen storage capacity. This new graphene has exhibited a hydrogen storage capacity of 14 percent by weight at room temperature — far exceeding any other known material. Rafiee’s new graphene material holds the promise of opening the door to better, more affordable hydrogen-powered cars and trucks.” Rensselaer School of Engineering said.

Keizai group further explains that the increase in demand for fuel cells will be towards housing hydrogen system and hydrogen cars, contrary to other research firm’s belief that hydrogen applications for small electronic devices will take on first in the market.

I think the Keizai analysis is more logical since transportation and home applications account majority of the energy use. If consciously establishing hydrogen economy and of preserving the environment I think it is the right path to follow. I really find it an exciting trend as fueling systems for home and hydrogen car are being installed.

Hydrogen Economy Scheme

This new development will put both Japan and Germany in the lead over the U. S. and other countries in regard to establishing and stabilizing hydrogen-based economy.
