Fuel Cell PowerPlug

Well this article about PowerPlug and fuel cell power generation sure looks promising, if we can come up with a way to make hydrogen on board.

Re: Fuel Cell PowerPlug

There's a local guy here who built a small, wave-generated "hydrogen plant" (I think it was maybe the size of a shoebox...more like "ripple-generated"). I see no reason a wind gen or solar couldn't do the same. I wonder how much fuel could be generated on a windy night (or day).............

The better question is how do you store that hydrogen.
