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

Recently funding levels for clean technologies seem to increase  by an addtional three 0’s, the talk is billions: €6 billion for the EU Green Cars Initiative, an extra €8 bln for regional projects on energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in the EU Cohesion funds that will be  extended to all EU Member States,  €5 bln for CCS, wind and smart grid development. Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies have links to all of these topics, extending the range of electric transport applications and making the most efficient  use of primary energy, both conventional and renewable. Informing key decision makers of the important efforts of European industry and research  in developing  commercial hydrogen and fuel cell systems and the need for focussed EU policy support in the next coming years will be crucial to ensure that some if these stimulus zero’s will be spent in our sector.  The EHA, together with its industry and national association members and through its support of HyER (formerly HyRaMP),  the regional partnership for hydrogen and fuel cells, is committed to continue play an important role to influence this political process.
