Hydrogen Fuel Cells are the projected "backbone" of the Hydrogen Economy.   There are issues in Hydrogen supply, and in the efficiency of Fuel Cells which must be explored.
  I have a page under development to look at Fuel Cell efficiency, and have a hypertext page below for hydrogen production.
If hydrogen is made from natural gas in a medium size facility, the efficiency is o­nly 65%.  Large facilities with higher efficiency are few, and tend to be in remote locations.
Compression of hydrogen from 300 to 6000psi will cost over 10% of the electricity produced by the fuel cell that will use it.  This is the cost of transportation.
