The use of Hydrogen as fuel raises many comments, both for and against. Numerous experts endorse it by assuring that, despite being a very volatile and flammable gas, it does not present greater risks than other fuels such as gasoline, and by using surplus renewable energies for its production from water, it would be generating a clean energy and with affordable costs. This is possible because at present, for example, the wind turbines of the wind power plants stop when it is not possible to consume all the generated energy, which should be stored in gigantic facilities with storage batteries. These batteries, in addition to occupying a large space, are affected by changes in humidity and temperature. If, instead of using these batteries, that «surplus» electricity is used to produce hydrogen, this gas can be stored indefinitely, and once it is used as fuel, the only residue obtained is water.
Directs in Spain one of the most important brands in the world and the most advanced in cutting-edge technologies. Precisely for this reason, look closely at the shortcomings so that these technologies can be applied effectively today. Hyundai leads the technological change, since it is the brand that has a greater offer of alternative engines: electric, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, light electric and hydrogen. «With the electric car,» says Satrústegui, «we have to be realistic, since the investment that has to be made in infrastructure has not been done yet or has been started. Today you are traveling and you do not have porters. And this is going to take time. We can not think that tomorrow all the cars will be electric ». He believes that the aid plans for the promotion of these cars have a scarce endowment and only last for hours. «Either there is a structural plan to promote these technologies and another to invest in infrastructure, or we will never make the leap necessary,» he argues.
The Motomachi plant (Aichi, Japan) has just taken another step to join a cleaner planet with the installation of a machine capable of generating and supplying hydrogen from renewable energy. It is a small machine that works with water electrolysis, allowing the generation and refueling of low carbon hydrogen. It is fed with the electricity produced by the solar panels installed in the enclosure, so that it can produce, store and supply hydrogen using a clean and renewable energy, that of the sun.
At present, the development of the construction of traditional military aircraft has reached the natural plateau of the technologies used. It is difficult to imagine something fundamentally new, which does not fit into the hundreds of times developed in the main trend of creating platforms for fighter planes and other combat aircraft. The announced transition from the fifth to the sixth generation of the Air Force must be marked by avionics systems and even more advanced weapons, as well as by other levels of active / passive protection of the tables … Of course, the use of artificial intelligence and New composite materials can lead the business of producing innovative initiatives at a previously inaccessible height.

Toyota has decided to release – with certain nuances – about 24,000 patents related to vehicle electrification technology and will also offer free technical assistance to other manufacturers. Toyota wants to promote the use of hybrid cars globally in order to reduce emission levels.
