Wind power's worth a punt

I was intrigued to read (NCE, 1 November) that hydrogen-cell-powered vehicles may now not be far away.

In the same issue the looming energy gap as gas-powered power stations wind down before coal or nuclear-fuelled replacements become operational was highlighted.

As nuclear fusion is still a distant dream, and wind/wave power has a way to go, it occurred to me that energy from hydrogen cells might be harnessed for power stations. I have no idea whether this is feasible but feel it's all worth a punt.
