  2. we cant manufacture these because china owns/is hoarding 90 percent of the rare earth minerals,which is required for these things

  4. Solar energy can easily solve the impending energy crisis in future.

  6. im skeptical,
    So your doing electrolysis with solar power, and using the hydrogen for fuel?

    Electrolysis is very corrosive to almost everything, and you would need to replace whatever you are using for anodes/cathodes, unless it was platinum. platinum is not readily available, and is extremely expensive.

    This “new” practice is futile when you start to realistically look at it.

    Also, the 2nd law of thermodynamics. just use the damn energy you get in the first place.

  8. I invented a breakthrough energy source which violates the law of energy conservation. I have a PROOF that there are electrodynamic phenomena violating the law of energy conservation. I am looking for $30000 for a prototype and for $3M for patents. In mass production it will cost $1200 to make a 15 kW generator, value of energy produced YEARLY about $10000.

  10. Oh gee…. I was thinking about solar power’s problems and this very same idea hit my mind, but it’s already been done, as this video shows…. :

  12. Hydrogen is not the answer, converting electrical energy into hydrogen chemical energy and then turning it back into electrical will have a terribly hard time being more efficient than batteries. Instead of researching a solution that’s rife with technical problems why not work on improving a system that’s already developed?

  14. He didn’t come up with shit!

  16. i want to knew is the solar system can be use at the commercial real estate like a store type

  20. Great video…I converted my home to a net-zero solar powered home that uses no oil or gas…I made a video about it called, “Preparing for Peak Oil”….

  22. great videos. i also find another site that is similar with it.

  24. @Millz444 lol same

  25. Millz444 on Thu, 4th Nov 2010 2:15 am
  26. if this is so amazing why have i only seen it on youtube. not only that but while trying to look up a video game…

  28. So we can make energy power by making hydrogen and mix it up with water?

  30. I “own” me, but that doesn’t imply that I know everything about how I work. Conversely, claiming to understand that one knows a fraction of how a plant works, doesn’t mean that person owns the plant. I like the idea, but, the physicist said, electrolysis creates further problems that must be overcome, but it IS a step in the right direction.

  32. Great video but don’t ever say you own “shit” they owned you for millions of years bra. But definitely a good find. And people say weed is bad for you “wink wink”.

  34. love it! i my parents needs to use solar power energy

  35. mariasman100 on Thu, 4th Nov 2010 5:08 am
  36. Better yet… use unrefined biomass to power efficient external combustion engines, and use waste heat efficiently for space heating, water heating, and even water distillation. Think about it for a while.

  38. Ultracapacitors.

  40. that is great if they found a way to make electrolysis more effective because normally it is terrible. it is also good if you have a need for hydrogen. but they say batteries are expensive and ineffecient? that is wrong.

    I think the idea that solar is no good because it does not run 24hr/ day is silly. we are not going to close down all fossil fuel plants when solar plants are running. how nice will it be to not be polluting whenever the sun shines. much better than now.

  42. guess what… look up carbon tax and carbon tax credit… bills, yeah they will never go away till we can live free and free of greed

  44. The tree are shrinking and expand so can there be some sort of presurizing system? Just like presure-cooker

  46. Solar panels and electrolysis? That’s the breakthrough? I like the animation with all the hydrogen tanks, as if the puny solar panels on your roof could ever fill those up!

  48. Nope I would tell them to take their money and shove it. I would give it to the world and I would patient it.

  50. No, you cannot patent what has already been patented. You cannot get another 20 years of intellectual property years once the time has expired. But it gets worse, you cannot patent a technological innovation once it has already been published or made public. Also methods,ideas theories cannot been patented. It’s got to be a technological innovation that solves a practical problem.
    ipo what is a patent

Tell me what you're thinking...
