I'm not aware of anyone specifically building a model where hydrogen takes care of all storage requirements. Hydrogen is often cited as a possible storage medium, but I understand that its round-trip efficiency is low.

WISE Distributed Energy uses a model that allows for many different forms of storage. As new technologies emerge and become cost effective, they can be incorporated into the model. Hydrogen as a storage medium will be evaluated along with others. The key to incorporating these technologies into the grid, is to drive the cost down through economies of scale and other factors.
