The problem with ammonia is the nitrogen oxide by product. Environment NO NO. See my next post for more info.It will be interesting to see if hydrogen fueled ICE's get a foot hold. I can see lots of safety issues with compressed gas and suspect it's a large reason why LNG or LPG (and their infrastructure) have never gained a larger popularity in the US.
I've also been hearing about ammonia fuels, specifically green ammonia. Again, I think the hazards might be their downfall.
I can possibly see many of our natural gas power plants swapping to hydrogen or green ammonia.
That being said, electric cars aren't going to work for everything, so there will need to be some type of fuel for mobile applications. Maybe gasoline and diesel won't be going away quite as soon as our politicians think.
I see the amount of infrastructure required for us to go to all electric vehicles as staggering. You're not talking about a single 30-40 amp charging station per dwelling. The reality is probably the need for 2-3 charging stations per household.
