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

As summer finally closes in and the first leaves  of autumn begin to fall from the trees, the hydrogen topic appears to be evergreen and continues to grow!

This Autumn the European Hydrogen Road Tour by H2 Moves Scandinavia kicks off, bringing a fleet of FCEVs across Europe spanning 6 countries in an effort to reach out to politicians, industry, press and public through seminars and Ride and Drive events to get the message across – hydrogen vehicles are already here! (see press release)

Scandinavia’s  pioneering efforts in the field of hydrogen  were again demonstrated by the opening of a hydrogen refuelling station in Hynor Lillestrom  recently. This is the fifth hydrogen refuelling station in the Greater Oslo Area, four of which are car-related stations, while all five stations are operating at 700 bar pressure.

EHA signs European Renewable Grid Initiative.
10 September, 2012EHA is now a signatory to the European Renewable Grid Initiative. In October 2011, the European Commission put forward a draft law making it easier to build and finance cross-border power lines, which are essential to making Europe’s energy system greener. The coalition of grid operators and civil society organisations supports Europe’s ambition to boost renewable electricity and cut carbon emissions. The joint declaration aims to strengthen the coalition of stakeholders supporting grid expansion to integrate renewables and raise public awareness of this need.
