"Roadmap to a Hydrogen Economy and Review of Alternative Energy Technologies" by Rinaldo Brutoco 


The planetary fossil fuel system will be replaced by a transition to a hydrogen based system, giving rise to dramatic changes not only in the nature of our fuels, how they are created and distributed, but also to a plethora of other business opportunities.  This shift and resultant state of affairs is sometimes referred to as the "hydrogen economy."  Hydrogen's role in all of this as both a "battery" storage system for alternative energy sources (e.g. wind, geothermal,etc.) and as the ultimate fuel itself opens up enormous opportunities for so-called "sunrise" industries even as it moves so-called "sunset" industries off the stage.
