100 TWh of Hydrogen Storage Needed To Avoid Blackouts

Hydrogen caves you say? Does anyone ever waste a thought about the fundamental nature of hydrogen? Hydrogen does not want to be alone. It’s a highly aggressive gas that transpires through pretty much any material. While it does so, it violently seeks a companion. Years ago, an Austrian company pumped hydrogen into a depleted gas field for storage. They got methane back. Looks like there was some carbon down there and the hydrogen reacted with it. The company called it Sun Storage. The deeper truth is that we just start to scratch the surface when it comes to geology. Earth is a methane-making machine that transforms dangerous hydrogen into friendly methane.
