It’s a challenge their government set the island in 1997 and which has been largely funded through local taxes and individual investments, in one of Europe’s wealthier countries - Denmark’s GDP per capita was more than $35,000 in 2006.
Now the islanders have shown that where there’s a wind, there’s a way - and in the process mounted a global showcase for one of the prize export industries in Denmark, which is home to the world’s largest wind-turbine maker, Vestas.
“I often use Samso as an ambitious example of how to cope with the big challenges that our own country faces in the race to become independent of fossil fuels,” said Randy Udall, a U.S. energy sustainability activist.
Based in Colorado, Udall imports ideas from all over the world on how to make communities self-sufficient in energy. On Samso, which is home to just 4,000 people, wind turbines tower over green fields and rise from the choppy waters of the North Sea; rye, wheat and straw are used to heat the one-storey buildings and solar panels have sprouted on roof tiles.
“I think Samso has set an agenda for the climate issue and, alongside other projects, it has shown that this is possible,” said Soren Hermansen, director of the Samso Energy Academy and one of the project’s main drivers.
Without any construction subsidies, the islanders have invested 400 million Danish crowns ($84.35 million) - an average of more than $20,000 per citizen.
“We invested $84 million - a big number for 4,000 people - but in reality it’s not a whole lot,” said islander Jorgen Tranberg, who describes himself as a milk producer who “owns a couple of turbines.” In Denmark’s geographical centre, Samso used to be best known for its early-season potatoes. Now 11 onshore wind turbines cover all local electricity demands and 70 per cent of the island’s homes are heated using biofuels or solar power. While some homes have opted to stay with oil furnaces for heating and cars are still common, the island has become carbon neutral by erecting 10 offshore wind turbines - in addition to the 11 on land - to offset the automobiles’ carbon emissions and those from the 30 per cent of homes still heated by oil.
“We even produce far more electricity than we need,” said Hermansen. The surplus is sold to the mainland. To promote windpower, the Danish government subsidises wind energy production to the tune of about 20 to 50 per cent of the final cost of power to consumers.
Beating the EU The islanders’ efforts dovetail with European Union policy but have gone much further than official targets. The European Union has committed to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by a fifth by 2020 from 1990 levels, and to get one-fifth of all energy demand from renewable sources such as wind, solar and biomass.
Some islanders say the renewable project has been helped by developing as a grassroots venture rather than having targets and regulations imposed by a bureaucracy. “First of all you need determination and can-do spirit, and then you need an economic foundation to make it possible,” Tranberg said in the cockpit of his wind turbine.
Many islanders own shares in the onshore wind turbines, an investment that they originally hoped would pay back after eight to 10 years. A stronger-thanexpected wind - blowing 10-15 per cent more force than expected into the blades - cut the payback time and now Samso Energy Academy says a share in a wind turbine generates about 500 crowns per year in income.
“We held a lot of meetings, but we managed to do it because we hired good experts and trusted our own instinct,” said Tranberg, who bought one early turbine himself and then a second offshore one with a partner.
“What is intriguing about Samso is their ability to make this project a sport for them, to show that this can be done,” said the U.S. activist Udall.
There have been secondary benefits for islanders too: cement was needed to build the turbines’ foundations, solar panels had to be installed and homeowners began to demand better insulation.
This gave blacksmiths and cement workers a reason to stay on the island at a time of economic slowdown: five families moved in to take on new ‘renewable energy’ jobs.
Overseas interest The project has attracted great overseas interest: ambassadors representing foreign countries in Denmark, on a recent trip to see Samso’s small towns driven by solar panel farms and wind power, were impressed.
“What we’re trying to learn is how to do it - how to achieve that level of energy renewable selfsufficiency that Samso and the community here have achieved,” said Frederica Gregory, Canadian ambassador to Denmark.
It has also helped draw attention to Denmark’s wind power prowess. Jutland-based Vestas last week reported a 67 per cent rise in its order backlog to over 7 billion euros, and estimated wind power will account for at least 10 per cent of global power output in 2020, from a little over 1 per cent today. This translates into annual growth of between 20 and 25 percent over the next 12 years.
“Using resources (that are) locally available and producing it in a way that is self-sufficient for the island while exporting green energy is something many nations would love to see,” said Slovenian ambassador Rudolf Gabrovec.

I seem to recall that Honda at one point wanted to market this car with a home hydrogen generator that would double as a home fuel cell, to allow you to generate hydrogen when electricity is cheap and then use hydrogen to reduce your electricity use when it's more expensive, in addition to supplying hydrogen to the car.
Hydrogen storage is much much safer than it ever was. We're more than 70 years past the Hindenburg disaster, and the biggest thing we've learned? Don't store hydrogen in a highly flammable container. That's right, the Hindenburg was covered with a highly flammable fabric. There are now hundreds of fuel cell buses on the road across North America and to my knowledge not a single one of them has had a hydrogen explosion. Why in God's name would you want to transport hydrogen when you can generate it on demand from water and electricity. This is the approach taken by the hydrogen filling stations in Iceland. We're actually pretty good at transporting electricity and water.
Brilliant plan. I hope they manage to pull it off. I'd be willing to have an around town car that I could fill at home, or even a neighbor's house, eventually.

The four-seater, called FCX Clarity, runs on electricity produced by combining hydrogen with oxygen, and emits water vapour.
Honda claims the vehicle offers three times better fuel efficiency than a traditional, petrol-powered car.
Honda plans to produce 200 of the cars over the next three years.
One of the biggest obstacles standing in the way of wider adoption of fuel-cell vehicles is the lack of hydrogen fuelling stations.Critics also point out that hydrogen is costly to produce and the most common way to produce hydrogen is still from fossil fuels.
Analysis of the environmental impact of different fuel technologies has shown that the overall carbon dioxide emissions from hydrogen powered cars can be higher than that from petrol or diesel-powered vehicles.
The first five customers are all based in southern California because of the proximity of hydrogen fuelling stations, Honda said.
US actress Jamie Lee Curtis will be among the first to take delivery of the vehicle, the firm added.
The car will initially be available for lease rather than purchase in California, starting in July, and then in Japan later this year.
It is being built on the world's first dedicated production line for fuel-cell vehicles in Japan.
"This is an important day in the history of fuel-cell vehicle technology and a monumental step closer to the day when fuel-cell cars will be part of the mainstream," said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda.
Honda says it expects to lease a few dozen units in the US and Japan in 2008, and about 200 units within three years.
It said the cost of the car, on a three-year lease, would be $600 (£300) a month.
The FCX Clarity is based on Honda's first-generation hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle, the FCX concept car. Honda delivered around 34 of these cars, mainly in the US, of which 10 remain in use.
Many car makers are developing cleaner, more economical vehicles because of high fuel prices and as consumers become more concerned with the environment.
Toyota said it was struggling to keep up with booming demand for its hybrid vehicles because it was unable to make enough batteries.
Hybrid vehicles, such as Toyota's top-selling Prius, switch between a petrol engine and electric motor.
Toyota Motor Corp's executive vice president, Takeshi Uchiyamada, told the Associated Press that new battery production lines could not be added until next year.
"Hybrids are selling so well we are doing all we can to increase production," he said. "We need new lines."
Volkswagen, Europe's biggest car maker said on Monday it wanted to produce a Golf which consumed three to four litres of petrol per 100 kilometres compared with 4.3 litres currently for the most fuel-efficient model.
"In the next few years, we are not going to do without petrol and diesel motors, but the future belongs to the electric car," VW chairman Martin Winterkorn told German newspaper Bild-Zeitung.

The car has an energy generator that extracts hydrogen from water that is poured into the car's tank. The generator then releases electrons that produce electric power to run the car. Genepax, the company that invented the technology, aims to collaborate with Japanese manufacturers to mass produce it.
Have you ever wondered why H2O water powered cars have never been marketed by U.S companies? Maybe the word OIL comes to mind!
Now the Japanese are marketing H2O cars. Please don't tell me that America will be buying H2O cars from Japan, when this simple technology has been available for decades!!!
But still you can make your own old car H2O water powered cars with this manual. Its very easy to follow and its working out very cheap as well. So this way you can run your own car on water as well. Main thing is this it will be environment friendly.
So if you want to run your own old bangger car on H2O click here for more details

If you made it yourself from the plans given in document “D17”, follow the tuning and installation instructions in that document.
“D17” or actually D17.PDF, is number 17 in Patrick Kelly's free energy collection of patents and plans. It's title is “Dealing With The Vehicle Computer”.
It is available on the Internet: search Google for “Dealing With The Vehicle Computer” including the quote marks.
I built one but decided not to mass produce it. If you want to build one but cannot find the document, please email me. Bill Lang found that in China they would make it for you for $3 apiece if only you'd order 1000 pieces. So if $3,000 sounds like a good business investment, go for it. It's definitely in very high demand, and rising!

Warmly recommended: clean the existing PCV valve in thinner, or replace it with a new one.
Locate the PCV Valve if you haven't done it so far. Wikipedia says regarding possible locations: “The PCV valve connects the crankcase to the intake manifold from a location more-or-less opposite the breather connection. Typical locations include the opposite valve cover that the breather tube connects to on a V-engine. A typical location is the valve cover(s), although some engines place the valve in locations far from the valve cover.”
Your car's maintenance manual (find it at your the auto parts store) tells you right away where each major part is located. Usually be the first couple pages in the engine-related book. Another source is www.AutoZone.com – click “Repair Info” and then select “Components Location”.
Under the hood, choose an easy to reach space for the PCV Enhancer. The device itself needs only a small space - but remember that you'll need access to check the contamination level and also be able to reach it with your hand for cleaning.
The best position would be below the level of the intake manifold (to enable water to sink into the device after the engine has stopped, rather than dripping back into the engine). Due to its plastic parts it is also recommended to keep the PCV Enhancer away from engine heat as much as possible, but no more than 2 feet away.
I chose a location at the of level of the PCV and easily accessible from the side of the car, near the brake drum.
If you want to, and if there is something in the vicinity to hang on to, you can add brackets to the PCV Enhancer (use the 4 threads at the upper body of the PCV Enhancer, they look like they'll take standard 1/8” screws). Then install those brackets to the car. If not, attach the device using bungee cords. To protect the device it can be positioned into a plastic can and/or padded with durable foam.
Disconnect the hose attached to the PCV Valve. Make sure you understand where the air flow is going in the system (start the engine for a second and see for yourself if you're not sure). This is important because the PCV Enhancer has a certain AIRFLOW DIRECTION even though it may seem symmetrical at first look.
Connect the OUTPUT of the PCV Enhancer [the black filter housing is embossed with clear IN and OUT markings] to the intake manifold port for the PCV Valve, as shown in the picture below. Use 3/8” hose. You can use the original hose if it can reach the location of the enhancer.
IMPORTANT: The hoses should not have any low spots that might collect water (since this water will freeze in cold weather and block the PCV system). Any liquid that may accumulate in the in or out hoses should be free to run into the enhancer when the engine is shut off.
Inspect the installation visually. Make sure all hoses are secured with clamps. Make sure the filter bowl (the transparent part) is tight – hand tight only!
Add a cap at the bottom opening on the PCV Enhancer. Closing the valve will not actually close it because the Husky filter was designed for POSITIVE pressure and will stay open under vacuum. The cap can be any ¼ cap, even as simple as a piece of hose with a bolt tightly screwed into it.
Start the engine and check the system by observing the transparent filter bowl. You should be able to see condensation – this is an indication that the system is working.
It is advisable to protect this device by placing it into a plastic bowl or bottle.

This is very easy example to explain that hydrogen gas is flamable and explore as well. On this video shows how to explore hydrogen gas.
1.Insert the wire that you are adding, the new wire (red shown but it could be either the red or black) into the rear slot of the splice connector. Note that it will only fit from the right hand side when the connector is positioned as shown:2. Insert the wire you wish to splice to (brown wire shown for example) into the front slot of the connector as shown:
3. Using pliers press the metal connector onto the wires. This will cut through the insulation of both wires and make a firm electrical connection between them, all in one action:

The alternator does not "require" energy to turn. It produces energy based on the energy applied to it. Therefore it "requires" energy to produce energy. It sounds as though you are making the "No Free Energy" argument. Which has its merits. But, this is a maximum efficiency of energy situation, similar to a rope and tackle system. Solar Energy is as close to Free as we will get in the near term.
As shown in the vacuum diagram above, vacuum lines are supplied from the engine to various car systems, and you should best use the system (“System X” in the diagram) that gets the highest vacuum. The idea is to suck the HHO into a place such as the carburetor or the intake manifold, where it can be automatically mixed with the existing fuel/air mixture.

If you have several boats in your marine club, or if you are the fleet manager responsible for the economics of many trucks or transportation vans, then you know exactly what I'm talking about...
The list below describes the TYPICAL kit, which means it is the list recommended by Water4Gas based on our experience and the numerous feedbacks we have received so far. But when you build one, or shop for one, there could be differences depending on who made them and where. The typical kit comprises the following:
Two quart-size highly durable glass jars (durable plastic option will be given later). We’ve never seen any of these jars break or crack, in thousands of miles of day-to-day road tests. (There were two incidents that the U.S. Postal Service broke jars even though they were marked “Fragile” and wrapped well, so give them an extra good wrap before shipping.)
Converted jar lid (made of durable white plastic) with electrodes, valves, wiring terminals, etc. This is a very unique design, with SPIRALED electrodes rather than flat ones. Due to the magnetic forces created by the spirals, this design produces MORE HHO - for LESS current drawn out of the car's battery. This is your Electrolyzer.
Another converted jar lid (metallic or plastic) that makes your Vaporizer.
MAP Sensor Enhancer – a must have for great fuel economy.
Fuel Heater: pre-heats your gasoline for better gas economy, a great companion to your Hydrogen-On-Demand system.
PCV Enhancer: another companion to your Hydrogen-On-Demand system that improves the PCV function, protects your engine and saves gas.
Fuse holder + installation wiring with ready-to-hook-terminals. Plus quick splice connectors for easy electrical installation. Plus flex protective tubing.
Vacuum line T-connector. Helps you hook up the Electrolyzer or Vaporizer to the Intake Manifold of the car.
Two vacuum line hoses, 3.5 feet each. (DO NOT CUT THOSE ANY SHORTER, IT'S ONE OF THE SAFETY FEATURES IN THE SYSTEM!)
Installation hardware: Bungee cords and cable straps.
Catalyst (sometimes called “Electrolyte” but actually the electrolyte is the correct term for the catalyst PLUS water) – this is the very SAFE household Baking Soda: the typical kit should have a bag of catalyst to get you started. It completes the kit to be ‘Just Add Water.’ The electrolyte is what helps the electricity separate water into HHO. Distilled water alone does not conduct electricity so nothing would happen without this Electrolyte.
The typical bag is 3.8 oz and is enough for 6-10 months of normal driving, and more can be obtained cheaply at almost any grocery store in the world.

Very little. If you use water only (vaporizing the water by slow bubbling it and then sucking it into the engine), a Gallon of water would be consumed in about 8 months. If you're using electrolysis to separate it to HHO first, that Gallon will be consumed in maybe 3-4 months. Still very little. You save roughly $900-$1,200 a year on gasoline alone (not to mention maintenance savings) with a monthly investment of about 5-30 cents. So if you want to talk absolutes, this is not 100% free, but you'll agree with me that we're creating a LOT of effect out of very, very little. It reminds of an old story my father used to tell me about this guy who tried to turn sand into gold...well he still needed the sand, didn't he?
This is water into gold! Not in the future but today - with home made technology.
- Water “conceals” a lot of energy inside. Let's examine how much.
- Compared to the energy of one pound of gasoline (let's call it 100%), the energy in a pound of Hydrogen is only 80% - while Brown's Gas of the same weight has a whopping 300% of the energy!
- When separating it into its Brown's Gas state, each Gallon of water expands into gigantic proportions – 1866 Gallons of combustible gas! That's why so much effect on the engine, while such little water is being consumed per week.
The device shown to the right is called HHO Water4Gas because it separates each water particle (molecule) into a different arrangement: two “H” for Hydrogen, bonded together, plus one “O” for Oxygen. This combination, in its gaseous state, is called HHO. Also also called Rhodes' Gas or Brown’s Gas after its famous researchers, William A Rhodes and Professor Yull Brown. HHO burns beautifully and provides TONS of energy. The device uses little electricity and very little water….
The H2O Water4Gas device (“Vaporizer”) shown to the left is a technology some 85 years old - we have official US patents from the 1920’s describing this technology as the common knowledge of those days! The device simply adds water vapor to the normal mixture of gasoline and air, and has most of the benefits of its bigger brother, the HHO device.Some say it has its origins in the fog of WW II, where it is said to have been used on U.S. aircrafts during that war. One story has it that as pilots flew their aircraft close to the surface of the water, they noticed a dramatic increase in the power and performance of their engines. For reasons that remain obscure, this technology has never reached the public.
What we have done is researched today’s technology and SIMPLIFIED the technology using readily available parts and materials, to bring you devices that are both very simple, very affordable and at the same time very POWERFUL. Our development also makes it easy for you to use, maintain and even duplicate our Water4Gas technology if you choose to.

When I was a child, my father was always telling me how impossible it was to get energy out of nothing. He was right - it's impossible to get it out of nothing - but the scientists "forgot" to tell him that water is not "nothing" WATER IS A VERY POWERFUL FUEL. All you need is the right "match" to ignite it and...BANG!
Wait a minute! If you're thinking now "if water - when converted to gas - is explosive, isn't it dangerous?" NO, IT IS DANGEROUS, due to several factors that you will see in a minute. I've been driving with it every day for almost 2 years and have 100's of other drivers using Water for Gas technology in very hot and very cold climates - it is totally SAFE. If it wasn't safe, Water for Gas would be out of business before the end of the day. The way we release water energy is very safe and it will be ignited only by the strong spark inside your engine!
