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

HyLIFT-DEMO Project meeting in Denmark
27 July, 2011On July 4th 2011 the HyLIFT-DEMO project held its second project meeting in Herning, Denmark. During the meeting project partners were able to exchange actions and future developments. The hosts, H2 Logic, gave a tour of their premises and presented the hydrogen fuel cell forklift truck prototype to be deployed with the project demonstration sites. The HyLIFT-DEMO project will conduct a large scale demonstration of Fuel Cell Hydrogen (FCH) powered FLTs (Fork Lift Trucks), while building the business case to enable following deployment and introduction by 2013. This first small scale series production of FLT will seek to validate the value proposition and commercial and environmental targets by retrieving the data provided by the demonstration operation.
