The chicken and egg problem is always there in new energy technologies. You investment in both supply and equipment to use it. People will not invest in one until the other is there...Systems that can be used with alternatives that are already available are a plus. Ethanol in gasoline is an example of one such system.

Yep, this is one of the somewhat unsung advantages of electric cars. There is already ubiquitous electric supply in this country. Of course there is additional investment for fast chargers, etc ... but for a lot of people, me included, going electric for most driving entailed nothing but plugging in the charging cord that came with their car into an existing outlet near the parking spot.
