I start by saying, I've always been against the bickering within clean energy, solar vs wind, lithium vs flow, electricity vs heat. When we all know the answer is all of these things. However, I think it's also important that we accept and focus on which technologies can have most impact, at least cost in the quickest time (time is not on our side to address climate change), in each use case. It seems overwhelmingly that batteries are the answer for passenger transport, most scales. Hydrogen, and fuel cells certainly have a case on long-haul trucking and trains. I am 'pro' hydrogen, and indeed have clients in the sector, we must though find the right applications. Increasing the amount of hydrogen in the gas-grid seems a very obvious solution which is being artificially (politically) held back. Just my thoughts, happy to hear yours.
With the recent start of the US and European roll-outs of 350kW chargers using the newly agreed 350 kW CCS standard (called Ultra-Fast charging to separate it from the 50 kW CHAdeMO and earlier 50 and 150 kW CCS fast-charging), that advantage has now effectively been lost. 350 kW charging would allow a 100 kWh EV battery to charge to 80% in less than 15 minutes. That equates to adding another 400 km worth of charge in the time it takes to drink a coffee. (Which, after travelling 450- 500 km if beginning on a full charge, you should be stopping for longer than that anyway!).
