Great idea! Non-constant power sources used to create H2 and then use the hydrogen to produce a constant supply of electricity. Solar is another example of a power source that is at it's peak at the wrong time. Highest power demand is at the dinner hour but here in Canada the sun is down by 5PM in the winter. Store up the daytime power in the form of H2 and generate the power when it's needed. I admit that storing H2 in even large aircraft would be a problem but fossel fuels will not last forever. Any other sugestions from anyone? What will be the next jet fuel?
