Power to hydrogen as a way to store excess electricity is currently too expensive, many modern gas-consuming devices could only deal with a small share of hydrogen in their fuel, and hydrogen has significantly less energy content per cubic metre than, for example, natural gas, writes Lukas Weber in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. “Power to hydrogen is a fascinating technology. Yet, it somehow seems like all the advantages could be had cheaper elsewhere. That’s a pity,” writes Lukas Weber.
