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 Norwegian Hydrogen Council published its second Action Plan for the hydrogen initiative. It sets out a vision for Norway’s role in an international hydrogen market: to be one of the global leaders and export both technology and sustainability produced hydrogen.

This report provides an overview of the Norwegian energy context and the implications for hydrogen and fuel cells. It takes a look at some of the new technology being developed for clean hydrogen production and reviews progress in implementing hydrogen refuelling stations and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). This has been sufficient for the country to emerge as one of the candidate early markets for the commercial rollout of FCEV.
