It's said that by 2030 we will use only renewable and nuclear, but thats when they stop selling ICE cars so the demand will go up by 1.5 to 2 million cars a year after that. Will we ever catch up and will the 10% of our 1% be enough?
 
It would be possible to cut emissions from internal combustion engines by 30% with a sweep of a pen, simply set a national speed limit of 50 mph and tax the living daylights out of anything over a two litre engine.
Personally I think there is a much larger part to play for hydrogen fuelled internal combustion engines as well as hydrogen fuel cell, especially for larger HGV vehicles and in agriculture.

I have the same opinion, an opinion I've held for 50 years, hydrogen is the future. Check out JCB, they have converted their diesel engines to run on hydrogen as an internal combustion engine. They will even supply a wind turbine, electrolyser and storage facility to go with it. Kits to convert existing engines from diesel are also available.
 
Taxing the living daylights out of anything over 2.0 litre would absolutely devastate me. My pick up is my absolute best friend, I simply cannot function without it.

Dogs, chainsaws, 4x4, high clearance, logs, building stuff for latest project, trailer. Be lost without it…….Literally!

Exactly.

Living out bush we see a future for Hydrogen vehicles, which are essentially ICE technology running on a different fuel and spitting water out the exhaust. Something to get your spanners onto.

However I’d need to know more about the Hydrogen production process too. Is it clean? Does it run on renewables itself?

Here in Aussie we’ve never had nuclear power which I consider a real shame, especially as former governments have done a roaring trade taking other nations nuclear waste…

There are futuristic designs by the University of NSW for solar or wind powered electrolysis. Essentially off grid community gas stations.
