Hydrogen and wind: Allies for sustainable energy

Because electricity from wind and other renewable sources fluctuates with the weather – unlike the steady supply from burning fossil fuels – sudden storms can overload the grid, while at other times there might not be enough power to meet demand.

That’s why experts say until we have a way to store renewable energy, it won’t be able to fully replace conventional power.
