One of the problems of releasing hydrogen from water is the strong nature of the hydrogen oxygen bond. Fukai technologies takes a unique approach of "preprocessing" the water before using an electrolytic approach with an aluminum or magneseum catalyst. They claim that by using this functional water produced with a suitcase sized apparatus, they can ultimately create energy at 20 cents per kwh.

Two liters of hydrogen can be generated for each gram of aluminum, while each gram of magnesium will generate 3.3 liters of hydrogen.

This will allow the production of 1kwh of electricity at a low cost of approximately 15 yen (calculated based on the use of unused aluminum powder). This cost can be reduced even further by using recycled aluminum cans.

The average cost of residential electricity was 12/kWh in the U.S. in April 2009, and ranged from 7 in North Dakota to 26 in Hawaii.

And of course, power in the northwest states, for example, is largely produced by clean, renewable hydro-power already.
