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 was invited to participate in an EU Policy Forum with Bosch and JTI at Hannover Fair. Dr. Richard Aumayer of  Bosch Automotive emphasized the importance of the right communication on future transport: Bosch anticipates that this future will consist of both battery and fuel cell vehicles. Gijs Vriesman, the newly elected chair of the JTI Governing Board, referred to the need for expectation management; although technical solutions are now within reach, all political and industrial effort is needed to create a commercial market for hydrogen applications. The EHA pointed to the need to engage more EU and national decision makers in hydrogen infrastructure development: hydrogen applications need to be integrated starting today to help allieviate acute problems as  for example local air pollution.
