Another multibillion dollar hydrogen project just got announced last week in Mississippi.  That makes a $4.5 bn one two weeks ago and now another one (for green H2) in the same range, and a global total exceeding $500 bn.  I think it's probably time you get the hydrogen subject on your topic list and perhaps while you are at it, either batteries or energy storage.  There are other subject listings that get a fraction of the investment and attention.  Can we maybe put these topics to a vote?  ;-)
