Not so easy to make a quick getaway when it takes 3 hours to juice up your motor, eh Brits?

In the early 90s you could generate H2 from water with and get 80% of the energy required to do that in a power cell. H2 is easy to store. And if ness could be compressed and used in fuel cells in cars.

And I dare say you could use the O2 produced as well to increase the thermal efficiency of Combined Cycle systems to near 90% so saving massive amounts of gas too.

And as for another form of storage - imagine heating your hot water and storage heaters on the almost free electricity generated when the sun is shining.
