It seems that recently fuel-cell noise is rising. It was all so quiet for so long.  Is there some breakthrough or regulation coming up?

And where are you putting your money?

Automakers?

Miners/Metals?

Battery manufacturers?

This "sector" seems far to broad to me and feels a lot like the "1940's aerospace" example in the Intelligent Investor.

No interest in investing in the field. I just like the tech and am looking forward to the EV transition.

Just seems like an industry filled with snake oil. I can't make heads or tails about it and that's enough to keep me away.

That's what the "too hard" pile is for. It should be tall and used frequently.
