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 Climate Brief Week 9: op z’n COP24…..

Just before the opening of the COP24 on December 2 in Katowice, 27 Dutch organisations, among which TenneT (TSO) , Stedin (DSO), Gasunie, VNO-NCW (business association), City of Groningen, the Port authorities of Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Groningen, Nouryon and Tata Steel confirmed commitment to a 300 mln 3-4 GW electrolyser installation initiative by 2030. This will push the price of hydrogen down to between € 1,50  – €3,00 per kg by 2030.

Five locations will be involved  to build hydrogen production facilities: in provinces of  Zeeland and Limburg and cities of Rotterdam, IJmuiden and Groningen.

The coalition also commits itself in building an 1GW off shore facility by 2030.
