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

McPhy Energy, specialised in hydrogen production and storage equipment for industry and energy markets, has just been awarded the call for tender by the Valence Romans Sud Rhône-Alpes intercommunity authority for its first hydrogen refueling station. In this way, this regional authority has established its position as a pioneer in green mobility and sustainable development just a few days before the opening of COP21.

After Lyon, Sarreguemines and Paris, this facility in Valence is the fourth hydrogen refuelling station McPhy Energy has been awarded since August. France has accordingly achieved a new milestone in building a network covering the territory providing for 100 hydrogen refuelling stations by 2018.

This station will be equipped with McPhy Energy’s modular solution for the hydrogen mobility market (McFilling®). This solution is destined to supply a fleet of light utility vehicles for the intercommunity authorities as well as for ten private operators. The station will be installed near the Valence-TGV station in Rovaltain with two business parks housing regional technical departments and numerous service sector companies. It will become operational by the end of 2015.
