    I find it interesting that BP thinks we will be using conventional engines and hybrids until about 2050, when hydrogen will take over.

    A brief history of alternate fuels, by someone who isnt old enough to remember and is not a history teacher.

    1950's nuclear power was going to be the go (lots of cheap, clean power), the end of petroleum was near, but it was going to take a while, as the technology was being developed, so we used petroleum while we waited. Of course it didn’t work out due to unavoidable flaws making it unfeasable.
    20 years latter it was the electric and solar cars that were going to be the go, (lots of cheap, clean power), the end of petroleum was near but it was going to take a while, as the technology was being developed, so we used petroleum while we waited. Of course it didn’t work out due to unavoidable flaws making it unfeasable.
    20 years latter it was hydrogen fuel cells that were going to be the go, (lots of cheap, clean power), the end of petroleum was near but it was going to take a while, as the technology was being developed, so we used petroleum while we waited.

    What comes next???

    An interesting paper. They are mostly correct and that is comforting to see. Of course. they could do more and I do disagree with some points very slightly, but overall, it is good to see an big oil major publish a vision regarding biofuels as a necessary transitional fuel. Possibly too little too late, but better than expected at least.
    I'd be interested to see any one else's comments on this paper.

    I heard a nice quote

    "hydrogen is the fuel of the future and always will be"
