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
When: 25 November, 2014   Where: UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, Colchester

The UK HFCA Parliamentary event will take place on Tuesday 25th November commencing  at 6pm. It will showcase how fuel cells and hydrogen are progressing across the world, examining international examples  (e.g. California and South Korea) where hydrogen and fuels see steep growth in the transport and power sectors. Hosted by the UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (UK HFCA) in collaboration with the Parliamentary Renewable and Sustainable Energy Group (PRASEG) and the All Party Parliamentary Group for Intelligent Energy (APPGIE), the debate will also highlight how policy and support are helping to stimulate growth abroad and how the UK could successfully build on this experience to grow a major new industry able to deliver against a range of Government policy objectives.  Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion and a networking drinks reception.

We’re working on the agenda, and so far have representatives from the California Fuel Cell Partnership and AFC Energy confirmed as speakers; we hope to be able to announce an OEM alongside these shortly.  There will also be several leading fuel cell and hydrogen companies involved in the panel discussion.
