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
European FCH Technology visibility in UNFCCC ambition

The globalization of climate technology development and deployment  not only involves collaboration across OECD countries but increasingly between universities and private companies in large emerging economies, such as China, India and Brazil as well as in other countries. In China 1700 foreign R&D centres have been set up over the last 10 years.  The EHA as a member of the UNFCCC Climate Technology Centre and Network CTCN, recently has been facilitating a succesful Technical Assistance request of the Brazilian government to support the set up of a fuel cell and hydrogen knowledge cluster in Brazil in view of the WHEC 2018 in Rio. EHA spoke  at a side event of UNFCCC Climate Change conference in Bonn on May 18, 2017 on the implications of the emergence of emerging economies as new players in global R&D for the development and diffusion of climate technologies on a global scale. Key findings of the CARISMA project , in which the EHA is a partner, were presented  especially on the globalisation of R&D in selected climate technologies as well as a mapping on climate mitigation research and innovation cooperation. EHA emphasized the need to accelerate the deployment of EU funded FCH technologies in emerging and developing countries as the impact on CO2 reduction and air pollution will be highest there. A technology cooperation session at the Group Exhibit at this year’s Hannover Fair last month co-organized by the  EHA featured recent H2 developments in Brazil and South Africa.
