The plants can be quite easily converted to burning hydrogen or ammonia, neither of which produce any carbon dioxide. So this seems like a good solution.

Japan's government has much bigger ambitions than that. It wants to be the world's first "hydrogen economy".

"The plants can be quite easily converted to burning hydrogen or ammonia, neither of which produce any carbon dioxide."

In what universe does hydrogen, except in laboratory conditions, not produce any carbon dioxide?

In our universe, 95% of commercial hydrogen is made by steam-reforming methane, a process that produces even more carbon emissions than burning methane alone. It wouldn't be unreasonable to assume the other 5% is made by electrolyzing water using electricity powered predominantly by natural gas power plants.

Hydrogen is a scam, a faux-green fuel being promoted by the oil/gas industry to extend reliance on gas indefinitely. Though that isn't good or bad for our universe, it's certainly bad for the planet on which we live.
