Electric Power and Fuel Transmission by Liquid Hydrogen Superconductive Pipeline
In the ultimate hydrogen economy, the twin premises are that hydrogen -will be derived from solar- or nuclear-generated electric power and that most road vehicles will be fueled by liquid hydrogen at about −420°F.
Thanks to four new technologies recently come to fruition, the above objective can be attained by transmitting high voltage D.C. power in a superconductive liquid hydrogen underground pipeline.
