You read:
“The idea is that by using renewable electricity in the process, the end result can be much cleaner than fossil fuel.”
OK – It is a beautiful idea.
Of course everything is possible if you pay the costs and renewable will not come for free.
In this way, I dare to say that looking carefully you may discover that the whole thing is nothing, but an excuse for expanding the unreliable, so-called renewable.

But let us harvest the low level fruits first.
At the same costs as we may pay for say 50 % E-fuel, we could build a lot of nuclear giving reliable energy and make a real reduction in the global pollution.

Maybe you might be interested in the proposals we are reviewing to make a multiple Hydrogen-Atom-Molecule which can exist in the natural as a liquid at ordinary temperatures – ranging between +200 degrees Kelvin and +380 degrees Kelvin and at standard atmospheric pressures – which would solve the issues here of an “Energy Intensive” fuel generated from water using renewable electricity.
