Yes, hydrogen can be produced from all those. But the process is massively less efficient than battery. This is the link medea posted earlier which explains it

https://theconversation.com/hydrogen...science-139899
That article's based on an apples to oranges comparison. It's no wonder changing (or not changing) the kind of energy favors electricity once it's been produced. But electricity is a secondary energy only.

Comparing source-to-consumption efficiency, with for instance hydrogen production not using electricity but different ways may well change the picture. Hydrogen from biomass for instance should compare much more favorable, may be even more efficient than electricity.
