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
WHEC 2016 links Spain to Europe’s H2 corridors!

Bjorn Simonsson director of Business Development of NEL, introduced NEL founder Sam Eyde who, in the early 1900’s, who inheritated a waterfall and started power production.
