Washington D.C. [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Competing visions of a future hydrogen economy are increasingly addressing how the hydrogen is derived. A new US $3.9 billion program proposed by two U.S. Congressman would authorize the current Administration to embark on a plan to produce hydrogen from three energy feedstocks: solar, wind power, and the sure-to-be controversial, nuclear option.

"When we can use our nation's own resources to create clean, dependable energy like hydrogen, our nation's power prices will become less susceptible to price swings brought on by foreign governments."

"With the price of gas over two dollars a gallon, coupled with diminishing domestic oil production, there is a strong need for the U.S. to wean off of its traditional, carbon fueled economy," Wynn said. "Helping develop a hydrogen economy, fueled by renewable energy sources, will reduce oil consumption and increase energy security."
