Hydrogen Hyperbole: Debunking Overblown Claims That Hydrogen Can Save Intermittent Wind & Solar

A couple of years ago I was invited to come and see a wind park operator in Austria. His problem was that when the wind blows and the market does not need the electricity, it’s almost impossible to store it. I told him that I am a gas man so how should I be able to help him? He told me that he heard that producing LNG at the site of production could be a possibility for storage. I flung out my calculator and ran some numbers. That was the end of it – it was simply not economical in any way. Far off. Hydrogens economics are far, far worse than what I talked about now.
