Arno A. Evers points the way to a hydrogen society
Arno A. Evers has always been ahead of its time. 15 years ago he founded the first Group Exhibit Hydrogen and Fuel Cells at the annual Hannover Fair, and is since then one of the founding father of German H2 and FC industry. For years, he coined this innovative industry more than almost any other in Germany. He is a man of clear words, loves the dialogue, while he is also provoking at some times. At this year's Hannover Fair, he launches his first book in Hydrogeit Verlag, a publishing house from nearby Berlin. The book is written in English, with the title “The Hydrogen Society ... more than just a Vision?” and raises the question of the future of hydrogen and fuel cells technology, leading eventually to a hydrogen society.
Arno A. Evers is a known personality, not only in the German hydrogen and fuel cells scene. Worldwide, he has made numerous oral and poster presentations at conferences. During the past years he travelled from continent to continent and collected material, which is now first published in his new book. It is about the following questions: How does the energy balance of the world or in Germany looks really like? How and why has the situation so aggravated? How can hydrogen be produced really renewable and future orientated?
Evers says: “Since 2003, together with my team, we attended - most recently on behalf of Deutsche Messe AG - exactly 105 conferences and exhibitions around the world. Based on this, I have developed about 300 info graphics with a new visual image. Here we are concerned with objective analysis of the actual state of the energy industry as well as background information on energy audits, energy efficiency, producing hydrogen. This information is normally not found so easily.”
The extract all of these sources can now fully be read in this book, which is consistently illustrated with photos and graphics. The author addressed in particular to readers who dismiss the conventional energy system, as it is existing now, who are critical and are looking forward for alternatives. Evers referred to his target audience as The Concerned Citizens. This group is getting bigger, but is still lacking noncomitted information. This book was written with the goal to remedy this. Evers said: "We want to reach and motivate young people in particular, as their future commitment to the realization of hydrogen society is indispensable." It is also addressed to all hydrogen and fuel cell insiders, who want to find neutral unbiased information.
T. Nejat Veziroglu, president of the International Association for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE), writes in his preface: "I strongly recommend this excellent book to energy engineers, industrialists, environmentalists and decision makers, as well as to those interested in the future of humankind and the welfare of the planet Earth."
