Beer as gasoline?

Fuel cells can create energy though simple chemical processes without a combustion process or polluting. This is why it is known as clean energy, and why it is so attractive to optimize this for commercial use.
The fuel cell is driven by hydrogen which among other things can be found in alcohol. This means that you can create a fuel cell that runs on whiskey or beer.

The only problem is that it is not yet energy efficient using hydrogen cells when compare to the regular fossil fuels we use today. There is no doubt in my mind that one day our cars will run on hydrogen when one day we have found a way to easily create hydrogen from water. Energy for hydrogen production could come from wind parks, or ocean wave energy.

There would be plants for hydrogen production, and gas stations would become hydro stations.

I know this is still a dream, a thought, a prediction… But that is imho where it all begins.
