Abstract: In this paper, the dominant scaleable vision is a solar-hydrogen economy, where solar thermal collectors are preferred to solar cells. Also for mobile storage, pure hydrogen (liquid and/or gas) is preferred to both electric batteries and hydrogen fuel cells. Placing this form of a solar hydrogen economy as an end vision on our energy policy. Governments profits, as they can build solar farms on a grand scale, with high levels of public acceptance, building stability and economy. A solar-hydrogen economy is of no threat to any existing industry-like fossil-fuel industry, petrochemical industry, nuclear power stations, nonsolar-sector renewable industries, such as wind, geothermal, etc., power generation industry, car manufacturing industry and the solar cell industry as hydrogen can be produced by even by splitting water, in fact, it is the bedrock upon which existing industries can anchor their longterm survival. Every energy source has its niche, and placing each in its correct perspective is the way forward to a viable energy policy roadmap.
