RE: McLaren Racing joining season 2 of Extreme E12 Jun 2021 03:31
I had assumed that the use of fuel cells on ships would be the high power density anion exchange membrane cells, rather than the larger liquid cells. If so we are only likely to see an early prototype this year and they are targeting the first commercial system Q4 2022. Is a system on the St Helena any time soon realistic?
Scarpa, when you have watched this share for years these charlatans appear regularly over different periods. Talk the share price down with their moans while the price is dropping, then all of a sudden recover when the price goes up. If they were genuine they would sell up and leave the board in peace.
Daz, “You can fool some of the people some of the time”. So off you go to invest in a company led by our former Chairman - he of the “fake news” era, and an influential major investor with a less than reliable history when involved with AFC. Good luck then. Your insincere moans will be missed on here (not).
Thanks Littlered. That MOU is 12 yes old, with possibly close to 90-100% turnover of AFC staff since it was released. I suspect they considered possibilities then they were quietly dropped when not practical. I wouldn’t bet on an existing long-term relationship.
Guitarman, one of the projects Bond announced some years back was the development of a hydrogen battery. That involves the generation of hydrogen, much as we see being done in Senegal at the moment. So the picture is not as black and white as you suggest.
To be fair to GarryParry before Bond announced the use of solar there was speculation on here that ammonia might be the source of the hydrogen.
Electrolysis to generate hydrogen is not a new idea. The trouble is it takes more energy to create the hydrogen than you get back from using it. Apart from Extreme E it is likely to be useful when there is too much power production for the grid. Passing wind farms you often see some turbines are not moving. Switching them off to balance the grid means they are not generating income, and one way to get around this would be to use them to generate hydrogen by electrolysis which is stored for later use.
You are such an insecure investor Garonne, if indeed you are genuine. The company have not said they expect vast sums of money from Extreme E. it is showcasing the technology in a range of environments that demonstrate its capabilities and provides small income. Meanwhile there are other work streams leading to revenue. You obviously did not bother to listen to the comments from Adam Bond about Julich and Acciona because he gave timescales for deployment. There are also RNSs giving dates for development with ABB and Ricardo. When they are ready they will tell us.
