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
Falling in love….who’s dating hydrogen?

As this month’s line-up of EHA’s most significant H2 news is demonstrating, hydrogen increasingly is “coupling” several sectors into firm longlasting relationships. The Austrian presidency starting next month has put renewable hydrogen as one of its prime topics in its energy program (page 16!), In the Netherlands, recent developments in electrolyer effciency and production ambitions has spurred cooperation between companies in sectors that only recently operated on different planets. Clearly the first EU Synergy project TSO2020 inspired the creation of the World’s first large industrial Waterstof Coalition backing a total of 4 GW electrolysers’ installations by 2030 in the Netherlands. EHA therefore has been  stepping up its “matchmaker” support to various national and regional intiatives, to ensure that sector coupling is firmly embeddend in regional and local environmental and economical realities. And not only Europe! Join us this month at the WHEC 2018 in Rio where we co-organize on June 20, 2018, in cooperation with the Brazilian Hydrogen Association and the UNFCCC Climate Technology Centre and Network a session on technology cooperation on sector coupling. H2 seems to have indeed given butterrflies to Brazil’s biggest renewable power and transmission companies as they have become key sponsors of the event. EHA keeps shouting its love for this sector from the roofs, paying ofcourse the highest of respects to EU’s new privacy laws: your data are only used to send this news brief, so just kick us out at the bottom of this email in the unlikely case you’ve had it….
