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

EHA contributes to European Council letter in view of special Energy Council Meeting
31 January, 2011In view of the thematic European Council of 4 February on Energy and Innovation, EHA in a joint effort with the Joint Task force for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells, wrote a letter on January 31st to the European Council members underlining the significant and broad role fuel cell and hydrogen technology play in the EU’s shift towards an efficient low carbon economy.
The letter also reviews the connection of fuel cell and hydrogen to the four large scale initiative announced in the EU Energy 2020 Communication- Smart Grids, Energy Storage, Large scale biofuel production, and Smart Cities.
The task force includes organisations:  Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, Industry Grouping for Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technology (NEW-IG), Fuel Cell Europe, The European Regions and Municipalites Partnership for hydrogen and fuel cells, (HyRaMP) and The European Hydrogen Association (EHA).

After 125 automobile years, the fuel cell car will tour the world in 125 days
30 January, 2011January 29, 2011 marks 125 years of automotive history; it was in 1886 that Carl Benz received the patent for the first motor car, heralding the birth of the automobile. From January 30, 2011, in addition to experiencing 125 years of automotive history, visitors to the Mercedes-Benz Museum can discover the answers to questions about the drive technologies of the future in the newly designed exhibition room Legend 6: ‘New start – The Road to Emission-free Mobility’. On the same day the Mercedes F-Cell took of on 125 day tour around the world. .

Electricity, hydrogen and biofuels main options in EU Future Transport Fuels Report
25 January, 2011Alternative fuels have the potential to gradually replace fossil energy sources and make transport sustainable by 2050, according to a report presented to the European Commission on January 25, 2011 by the stakeholder expert group on future transport fuels in which the EHA participated. The role of the use of hydrogen in fuel cell vehicles, including buses, in decarbonizing EU transport by 2050  is included.  The EU will need an oil-free and largely CO2-free energy supply for transport by 2050 due to the need to reduce its impact on the environment and concerns about the security of energy supply. The expert group has for the first time developed a comprehensive approach covering the whole transport sector. Expected demand from all transport modes could be met through a combination of electricity (batteries or hydrogen/fuel cells) and biofuels as main options, synthetic fuels (increasingly from renewable resources) as a bridging option, methane (natural gas and biomethane) as complementary fuel, and LPG as supplement.
