But despite the problem with the energy-to-weight ratio, it is widely agreed that battery-powered planes — charged using renewable energy — will be used for short-haul flights within the next ten to 20 years.

I'm curious why the short-haul flights would be using battery if the hydrogen fuels for longer flights might be available. Would it simply be more cost-effective? Or are these in development in case the hydrogen fuels aren't widely available and they want to decarbonize the short-haul flights sooner?
