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

At the 19th H2 an FC Group exhibit at the Hannover Fair this year, Marieke Reijalt, Executive Director, European Hydrogen Association presented EHA’s projects, both current and those planned for 2013.
