True. But still the resistive heating in electrolysis makes heat that has to be removed.
I guess it is possible to thermal isolate, and keep the temperature "down" by letting exess heat generate overheated steam (temperature is in suitable range) to drive turbine and generate electricity, but as those plants are located where electricity is as cheapest i guess that is the reason they do not do so... yet?
