So electricity storage is not a perfected science.. What would be required to use ALL of the available electricity (during times of surplus) by generating Hydrogen and storing energy in that form.
Even if the conversion factor is low due to inefficiencies, storing a small percentage of the available energy in this form is a step in the right direction.
Couldn't Hydrogen be stored temporarily at remote generating sites and later transported to other locations for consumption/distribution.
Gas turbines - for electric generation when Hydro power is less available..
Hydrogen fuel cells..
Internal combustion engines..
Any stored energy is more valuable than lost energy.. isn't it?
