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
Performing Life Cycle Assessments for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies: Training Course
27 July, 2011The FC-HyGuide project, funded by the European Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is coordinating two training courses on the 1st and 29th of September based on the development of a guidance document and related training materials for LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) studies on fuel cells and hydrogen production.

FC-HyGuide: Invitation to Public Consultation
7 April, 2011The project FC-HyGuide aims to develop a Guidance Document for LCA studies on hydrogen production and fuel cell technologies. It is financed by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), a public private partnership supporting research, technological development and demonstration activities in fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies in Europe. After several months of project work, a Technical Expert Workshop (held mid February 2011 in Brussels) and the revision of the draft Guidance Document the project team now wants to invite Stakeholders and interested people to critically comment on the advanced Guidance Document for: –       hydrogen production
–       fuel cell technologies This public consultation will be carried out from April 1 2011 until April 30 2011. Two documents (one for hydrogen production and one for fuel cell technologies). Further information may be found on the project website : www.fc-hyguide.eu

FC-HyGuide Technical Expert Workshop
2 February, 2011On 14th and 15th of February 2011, the FC-HyGuide Technical Expert Workshop was held at the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and Arts in Brussels. Organised in the framework of the FC-HyGuide project, the workshop grouped experts from both research and industry, to present and discuss the first draft of the “Guidance document for performing LCAs on Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies”. The workshop, organised in parallel sessions for discussing the specificities of each technology, was characterised by a fruitful discussion among all the participants. EHA is a Dissemination partner within the FC-HyGuide project.
