Still not good enough for a car.. but what this is really going to do is
make solar and wind much more viable.

If you can cover your roof with solar, and have a washing machine sized
box in your basement that converts spare power in the day into hydrogen
and oxygen, then burns it later when it's needed.  Or a much larger
version for huge solar arrays that can provide power on demand at night.
