Solid Hydrogen Explained (Again) – Is it the Future of Energy Storage?

Near the end of last year I published a video on solid hydrogen storage and it got a lot of questions, critiques, and push back from some of you. In some cases, rightfully so, and in other cases, not so much. Based on the more constructive critiques, the video focused too much on one company, Plasma Kinetics and their claims. It didn’t give enough context around metal hydrides in general. In trying to simplify a pretty complex topic, I oversimplified some things, which created problems. So is solid hydrogen storage actually a thing? Is solid hydrogen currently being used? And what about Plasma Kinetics? Let’s take another crack at solid hydrogen energy storage and try to address some of the shortcomings of my last video.
