Nissan to develop vehicle using ethanol-based Solid Oxide Fuel-Cell technology by 2020
The energy cost to convert fossil fuel 'A' into the pet fossil fuel 'B' your preferred fuel cell uses are similar across the board. And while it is true that ethanol infrastructure is cheaper than H2, the much more basic problem is that fuel cell are no where near efficient enough to compete with a battery. And that is before we consider the cost, reliability and longevity problems of the fuel cell stack.
Fuel cell stacks in transport appeared promising on paper in the days when ICE engines ran at 18% efficiency, battery cell costs were $1000 a kWh, and the LEAF was the best offered at 80 miles range and 6 hours to recharge. You are stuck in 2010 and don't realize that long-lived, high performance, reliable and increasingly affordable 300+ mile, under 30 minute recharge EVs are on the road today and further dramatic improvements are around the corner.
Go test drive a Tesla. Then you will understand.
