WATER was yesterday hailed as the answer to the world’s energy crisis.
US scientists claim to have found a way to generate electricity from water vapour – freely available in the air – ending the world’s dependence on oil.
They said the energy released is so intense a car could go 3,000 miles on a litre of water – or about 450 times further than the average family vehicle using petrol – and 17 litres could power the average US home for a year.
US firm BlackLight Power said the process was validated by six academics. One hailed it as “one of the most
important technological breakthroughs in history”.
But energy expert Professor Ian Fells of Newcastle University said: “It is a spectacular claim. I suspect it will turn out to be a mistake.”
