Fortune.com - Why Japan wants to transform into a 'hydrogen society' -David Z. Morris  Oct 21, 2015
Japan is making a big bet on an alternative fuel for the future—but will it pay off?
http://fortune.com/2015/10/21/japan-hydrogen-fuel/
 
According to the Council On Foreign Relations – High Hopes for Hydrogen; Fuel Cells and the Future of Energy by Dr. Matthew Mench  - Producing hydrogen now costs less and emits less carbon than ever before. In part, that is the result of the United States’ newfound abundance of natural gas [6], the source of most of the hydrogen produced. But it is also the result of technological improvements in the process of “reforming” natural gas into hydrogen. It now costs around as much to produce a gallon of gasoline as it does to produce the energy-equivalent amount of hydrogen with natural gas. Meanwhile, another method of producing hydrogen—electrolysis, which uses electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen—has seen major cost reductions as well. What makes electrolysis particularly attractive is that when powered by renewable sources such as wind and solar power, it directly emits zero carbon...
