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
Introduction

Over the last weeks the EHA presented EU policy affecting the use  of hydrogen as an energy carrier as well as local developments at several events in Brussels: the EHA session at the EU Sustainable Energy Week , February 9, organized by the EU Commission, saw updates on several regional activities with regards to sustainable hydrogen production. Even the EU Sustainable Energy Award had its first hydrogen and fuel cell winner in the Hyfleet Cute project, that received the Award in the category demonstration. The EHA was also invited to the final HySafe general meeting to discuss future cooperation in the dissemination of issues regarding hydrogen safety and the promotion of the save use of hydrogen in general.
The EHA is monitoring closely the energy topics in the EU Economic Recovery Plan, CCS, Off shore wind, EU grid that all have links to the use of hydrogen as an energy vector.
