It is important to recognize that total consumption typically consists of at least these two components: † A variable, production-dependent load. † A constant, production-independent load. 957 140,000 120,000 100,000 80,000 60,000 40,000 20,000 0 0 10000 20000 30000 40000 50000 Production (lb) Similar models can be produced for buildings, in which case degree-days rather than production may be the independent variable. In addition to providing a basis for the reduction of energy waste, the energy performance model also provides the means of determining the energy budget for a projected level of industrial activity or projected weather conditions in a future period.

One great benefit of hydrogen is its energy storage capacity in a small space, just as with natural gas or oil. In contrast, electricity is normally stored via chemical batteries or esoteric solutions as pumped hydro storage or compressed air caverns, which are large, very localized, expensive, and relatively inefficient. It is interesting to note, however, that small packages of compressed air storage for electricity is now available (2006) in modules that can fit in a closet and produce UPS power for personal computers and other critical power functions.
