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

The Hydrogen Council doubled membership over the last few weeks thanks to increasing Asian interest: China Energy, Great Wall Motor,  and Weichai, became steering members, alongside 3M, Bosch and JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation. Hexagon Composites, Marubeni, McPhy, Nel Hydrogen and Royal Vopak join as supporting members. The Council’s Roadmap, presented at its first year anniversary at the COP23 in Bonn last Janaury, is indicating that by 2050, hydrogen could potentially meet 18% of the world’s final energy demands, avoid 6 Gt of CO2 emissions, i.e. 20% of CO2 emission reduction targets by 2050, create a market with revenues of 2.5 trillion dollars each year, provide 30 million jobs and reduce C02 in sectors like transport, industry and residential by between 40% and 60%.
