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
New study published on Commercialisation of Energy Storage in Europe

On Wednesday the 18/03/2015,the new study on Commercialisation of Energy Storage was launched.

The FCH JU believes that it is essential to understand the future demand for energy storage covering a wide range of options from a technology-neutral point of view. It initated therefore this current fact-based study carried out by a large coalition representing dfferent technologies and players in the energy storage market.

This report focuses on the question to what extent current and new storage technologies can contribute to integrate renewables in the long run and play additional roles in the short term.
