I watched Sandy’s video on it. It might make it easier to distribute the hydrogen but it doesn’t fix the efficiency problems. It also doesn’t fix the environmental problems of hydrogen. Almost all hydrogen comes from reformed methane which releases as much or more CO2 into the atmosphere than burning gasoline. Green hydrogen isn’t green either because it wastes green energy which has to be made up with fossil fuel derived power. If there was an excess of renewable or nuclear power then it wouldn’t matter as much but that’s in the distant future. If you have a KWh of clean electricity it’s better to but it into a BEV that can go four miles on it then to put it into a HEV that can only go 2 miles.
