U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., in Wallingford: US must match China on hydrogen tech



New Haven Register | Luther Turmelle | Thursday, April 18, 2019

WALLINGFORD — U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said Thursday the nation is in a race with the China in the energy sector it can not afford to lose.

Murphy said the Chinese are working with energy technology companies in a variety of areas, including developing new ways to make hydrogen that will be used in such things as power storage and vehicles that run on the fuel.

“The real danger here is that China gets into this business and essentially creates so much scale that it puts American companies out of business,” he said Thursday after touring Proton OnSite, which makes equipment that produces hydrogen. “We have to understand what the Chinese are doing. The Chinese are doing direct government-to-business partnerships on this kind of new technology and if we don’t do the same, the Chinese are going to own all of these new technologies.”

Murphy last visited the company’s Technology Drive headquarters before Proton OnSite was acquired by Nel, a Norwegian company, for $70 million in February 2017... https://www.nhregister.com/business/article/Murphy-visits-Wallingford-based-hydrogen-13779182.php#item-85307-tbla-5

Wow there's at least ONE PERSON in the US that is paying attention.

Won't stop China from owning this tech but at least the history books will show that Murphy was thinking ahead.

2. Should we also match them in new coal-fired plants?

3. How much energy will need to be expended in order to harvest this free energy?

Is hydrogen just going to jump into a bottle for us?
