Since the end use case is heat, then surely it would make more sense to convert the electricity to heat directly and keep it in a thermal store.
The excess could even be used to drive a heat pump which loads the store to further increase efficiency.
Hard to see what the benefit of the conversion to and from hydrogen is in this case.

That was exactly what I thought when I heard the program but I think he is now using the H2 for a vehicle.


The exciting thing is that the  ROI appears to be 6 years  and it would appear to be a financially viable system .
