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

In view of the launch of the European Energy Programme for Recovery, the EU Green Car Initiative, Clean Bus Financing Facility and Renewable Energy Financing Facility the EHA invited the European Investment Bank to its AGM and European National Association Meeting (ENAM) on June 17, 2009 in Brussels to explain more details on these ancing programmes. In addition the upcoming call for proposals of the  Joint Undertaking for fuel cells and hydrogen,  JU FCH, this June and the contribution of  the EHA and national associations will be discussed with the chair of the JU FCH  Governing Board, Gijs van Breda Vriesman. The ENAM focussed this year on leveraging EU, national and local funding and the dissemination of relevant JU FCH results and developments. In collaboration with its national associations the EHA is also developmenting key messages to the newly elected EU decision makers. All presentations of the event are availble to EHA members on the intranet site.
