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 EHA Board invited the new interim director of the JTI, Philippe Vannson, to its last meeting last Janaury 27 in Brussels to discuss topics for cooperation. The EHA has sent a letter to the JTI Governing Board offering the expertise of its members to facilitate harmonisation of authorisation procedures in Europe, to support the development of Regualtions Codes and Standards, to disseminate orelevant JTI project results through EHA’s national and local channels and to work on technology benchmarking. The EHA suggested also to collaborate to ensure that future EU’s transport and energy policy actively support the development of a commercial market for hydrogen and fuel cell applications. The recently approved EU Directive on the Emission Trading System (ETS) for example includes hydrogen production installation and the EHA has asked the EU Commission to be included in the planned benchmarking hearings on earmarking odf ETS revenues.
