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 facilitated a tour of the premises of the EU Parliament in Brussels to identify suitable sites for hydrogen and fuel cell installations. Current back up power systems of the EU Parliament consist of large diesel generators complemeted with battery packs. Fuel cell systems connected to the natural gas grid would dramatically increase efficiency and emission reduction as is shown by the fuel cell currently being installed in the EU Parliament Luxembourg. Potential locations for small hydrogen refuelling facilities were also identified. Although the EU Parlaimetn in Brussles is only 10 years old it was clearly not build with new energy technology in mind and it currently does not feature a single use of clean energy not even solar panels. A week before the visit on the occasion of the EU Green Week the EU Parliament communicated its intention to step up its efforts to make ts own buidlings more efficient.
