Transport and Industry Run on Electricity and Hydrogen

We have observed in Chapter 11 that it would save about 25% of our energy load if all the homes in an affluent, industrial country were run on solar energy, instead of fossil fuels. Solar-based hot water alone would save 6% of the energy load, in parts of the country where it could be used. However, the major part of our energy needs are outside the home. In fact, over half of our energy goes into the activities of transportation and industry.
