The applications listed in the summary seem about right - aviation and stationary energy storage.
Not for road vehicles - except perhaps heavy trucks.

Inter-seasonal energy store for off-grid dwellings is another possible.

Just interseasonal store for everyone really. Maybe a pity that it's the same "hot" Countries that will have the most of it and also that it is quite explosive.

I'd guess that it is a non-starter. It requires a dedicated solar panel, where the attractions of a general purpose solar PV panel are clear, and it can be used with electrolysis to create hydrogen during a surplus.

It may not be as efficient, but the benefits of having massive solar PV generation in a grid system, and then selling (giving away, or at negative cost) surplus for long term storage seem pretty clear to me.

My suspicion is that it's unlikely to be used as actual Hydrogen, more likely to be converted to syngas or ammonia for longer term/easier storage.
