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

“Already 6,475 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles have been sold globally by the end of 2017” states the report by market research firm Information Trends: Global Market for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicles, 2018. This number amounts for all the sales of the vehicles, since their commercialization in 2013. Sales in California hold the biggest share (over 50%), with Japan holding the second place with 38% and Europe with only 9%. Moreover, in 2017 the sales of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles doubled compared to the previous years.

From the automakers perspective, the overwhelming majority holds Toyota (75%), but it is expected that at least 11 car companies will produce hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by 2021.
