Click on any of the term papers to read a brief synopsis of the research paper. The essay synopsis includes the number of pages and sources cited in the paper.
An 8 page paper discussing the economics and problems of hydrogen fuel cells as power plants for cars. Jay Leno praises the BMW Hydrogen 7, but the chief engineer of the Chevrolet Volt notes that the hydrogen infrastructure will be easier to implement in China or India, where there is not an extensive gasoline infrastructure. The status of hydrogen fuel cells in 2008 is promising for the future, but they cannot yet provide less dependence on carbon because of the consumption required to produce hydrogen fuel. Bibliography lists 12 sources.
A 4 page paper discussing the alternative fuels that gain the greatest attention in 2007. The paper discusses ethanol (including biofuels), current fuel cells and hydrogen research. The paper concludes that we need clean, alternative fuels; we also can conclude that we have not yet achieved a single solution that can fully substitute for gasoline and diesel fuel. A separate PowerPoint® presentation is available as well. Bibliography lists 11 sources.
