100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply
Where will fuel cell cars take us in 2018?

As 14 countries included H2 in their national policy framework required by art 5 of the EU Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive (COM2014/94), we are looking forward to national hydrogen refuelling (HRS) station coverage by 2025 in more than half of EU territory. The EU HRS publicly accessible station monitor on our homepage is now counting 115 stations; the EU TEN T program will have co-funded over public 300 stations in 12 months time.
So where will fuel cell cars take us this year? In the KPMG  Global Automotive Executive Survey released in early January 2018, fuel cell electric mobility was listed as the number one key trend this year, up from fifth place in 2016. More than three-quarters of global executive respondents say that fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) will be a break-through for electric mobility. They project an even split in future usage between battery electric vehicles (BEV, 26%), FCEVs (25%), internal combustion engines (25%), and hybrids (24%). A recent Californian Executive order points to 1,5 mln FCEV and 200 stations in 2025 to reduce transport’s 50% stake in CO2 emissions and 80% in smog forming pollutants. Will the recent spur in Chinese FC bus interest do the final tric to push European manufacturers to “massive” FCEV commercialisation? Watch this place…..
