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 National Council of Automobile Professions (CNPA) joined the AFHYPAC (The French Association for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells) on October 28, 2015. The CNPA represents the French automobile distribution, sales and services companies.

The partnership will further promote the initiatives launched by the Hydrogen Mobility in France Plan, coordinated by the AFHYPAC. The Plan, under the European Program HIT “Hydrogen Infrastructure for Transport”, aims to simultaneously deploy fleets of vehicles and service stations in close collaboration with other stakeholders.

Working closely with the industry, CNPA wants to take an active part in the establishment of an environment favorable to the launch of hydrogen vehicles and service stations. The territorial coverage of CNPA networks will facilitate the deployment of a national coverage of hydrogen charging stations. By becoming a member of the AFHYPAC, CNPA marks concretely its interest in the Hydrogen Mobility.
