Thank You !

Sanity re-enters the thread.

The only possible advantage might be their oxygen electrode structure. Nothing
else has changed over standard electrolysis AFAICS. So, a few percent better
efficiency ? Turns a lame duck into a very slighlty less lame duck.

You need to quote the part where it requires electricity to use the
catalyst.  So, if you have electricity, you can more effeciently
electrolyze water with the new innovation.  A nice thing, but it has
nothing to do with solar or wind energy.

The cheapest way to get electric power is not solar or wind energy.

You mean quote the part that has to do with solar energy?  Okay...
"With today's announcement, MIT researchers have hit upon a simple,
inexpensive, highly efficient process for storing solar energy."

They're using the catalytic process to store excess energy instead of
sending it back to the grid, storing it in batteries or just not
capturing it.


Nice blanket statement.  Should we assume that to be true regardless
of the price of other energy sources, technological developmenta,
effecta on the environment and waste streama, and government
subsidies?

There's a deltaT in there.  Things are not static in our world.
