Just eight years ago, analysts (https://www.greentechmedia.com/articles/read/study-batteries-to-add-14400-to-evs-5900-to-plug-ins) were predicting that the cost of making cars electric would add an additional $14,400 to the price of a new car, while hydrogen fuel cell technology would add just under $5,300 to the cost of a new car if it was powered by hydrogen.

Yet today, as battery electric vehicles are starting to gain appreciable acceptance in the mainstream marketplace and static battery energy storage products are starting to flood the market, hydrogen fuel cell technology seems to be struggling to grow at all.

How were analysts were wrong? What advantages do battery packs have over hydrogen fuel cells? And what does it mean for the future of both transportation and energy storage?
