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 EU Network of Excellence, HySafe, that is bringing together the expertise of a large number of European hydrogen safety experts, held its final General Meeting on  February  24-26, 2009 in Brussels. The EHA was invited to present its activities in Brussels highlighting the various EU dossiers that are affecting the development of the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier in Europe. The Network intends to continue part of its activities and dissemination through the International Association of Hydrogen Safety, IA HySafe from Brussels in the future. The EHA in its presentation referred to the need to join forces to communicate the right information to EU, national and local  policy makers, authorisation officials,  as well as the general public. The HySafe network is organizing the third International Conference on Hydrogen Safety Conference in Ajaccio, Corsica on September 16-18, 2009.
