The following practical applications can benefit from the introduction of hydrogen fuel cell technology into conventional fuel tankage. These include:
aerosolization to generate electricity
aerosolization of water
solar power systems.
Hydrogen fuel cell technology should be adopted with maximum caution into the environment. The first example of using a hydrogen fuel cell system to create ‘free’ electricity is that of a hydroelectric plant. This type of energy generation requires a huge amount of water; that of this type of power plant may not require.
In the same way that an efficient gas engine can power a variety of applications (such as water power, solar power, and wind turbines), this type of fuel cell can power a variety of applications (such as fuel cell applications to increase agricultural production).
A new study on the history and economy of the American Southwest offers insight into the origins of modern-day energy technologies.
“History of New Mexico,” by Robert J. Mankin and Richard L. Pfeiffer at the University of New Mexico, is the fourth in a series of four articles that were released online last month by the Center for Southwest Studies (CWS), a center that Mankin leads. The four articles focus on the history of New Mexico and the southwestern United States as an important hub in modern energy history. (The CWS has previously published a series of articles that began with “History of New Mexico.”)
Mankin’s recent research provides evidence that one of the most important events in modern America’s energy development was the discovery of oil in Texas. The discovery provided a new source of energy and enabled the development of the automobile and the railroad networks that transformed the west. The article also documents the early involvement of the U.S. Bureau of Mines, a precursor to the U.S. Department of Energy, in the exploration and development of natural gas.
Mankin first began his own research on the history of the U.S. Southwest in 1986 while working for the U.S. Geological Survey. His research led his to explore the history of U.S. and western energy and land development. “We wanted to provide a new narrative for the Southwest story,” said Mankin, whose work was first published in the New Mexico Journal of History and Geography.
In his study on the development of oil in the southeastern United States, “American Oil in the New Mexico Rio Grande Valley: A New History
