How to Waste Mountains of Energy: Turn Wind & Solar Power Into Hydrogen Gas & Burn the Gas

In Vienna, we have a modern waste processing unit in the East of the city. part of the entire complex is a bio-digester producing methane and also anaerobic digesters that produce methane from wastewater. When I asked them what they do with the resulting bo-methane they told me they burn it to produce power. I was aghast. here they had a premium energy product, ready to be used as CNG or LNG if properly processed to fuel the cities fleets, and they burn it for power. By the way – Austria is a hydropower country so we need that power like a kick in the rear.
