6. That's one thing they did point out, that it's not economically feasible

and that usually means it sucks more energy than it produces.

However, were that energy to come from something like a solar tower, that might not be the case forever.

It might be better, however, to use the energy from the solar tower to perform hydrolysis, liberating oxygen and hydrogen for use in fuel cells.
