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

The GREAT project kicked off the TEN T Daysfrom April 25-27  in Ljubljana. EHA will give you exclusive briefs on the latest on European alternative fuel infrastructure deployment.

The participants expressed their views on the EU Vision 2030:

  1. Regulation : no targets for vehicles are in place, slow pace clean car introduction
  2. Tax and incentives: need for more specific incentives, LNG needs more support
  3. Knowledge: need for clear and humorous! messages on need for new tech deployment on social platforms. NGO’s and authorities need to communicate key  EU project results
  4. Pilot projects: hydrogen project connected to wind and solar in port of Marseille, guidance of government in small countries is more important than industry action.
  5. Infrastructure: many options but costs are still high and too many options slow deployment. Full interoperability requires demand for open protocols and set boundaries.
  6. Procurement: quit fossil fuels!  need for EU zero emission trucks. Targets needed  to stimulate OEM’s.
