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 presented national strategies at the Roads2HyCom Workshop “REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND HYDROGEN PROJECTS” organised by Roads2HyCom in co-operation with HyER (formerly HyRaMP), the European Regions and Municipalitities Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells on March 4, 2009 in Brussels.  The EHA highlighted the developments in France (H2E project coordinated by Air Liquide) the German National Innovation Programme for Hydrogen and Fuel Programme NIP, and the Norwegian HYNOR projects. National hydrogen and fuel cell platforms in Spain, Portugal, Italy,  and the Czech Republic have been set up to complement the developments of the EU Joint Undertaking  In France and Greece new initiaitves to create a national platform have been launched. The UK Ministry of Industry is supprting the Fuel Cell UK network  The EHA is organzing a National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association workshop on June 17, 2009 in Brussels.
