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

A joint workshop will be organised by the projects: H2Trust, SUAV, Hycarus and HYPER and will take place on Wednesday 25th February in Barcelona. The workshop programme is as follow:

14.00 – 15.00: Project presentations

15.00 – 16.00: Presentations on ‘Critical aspects to consider when planning for field trials’ (20 minutes including questions)

Professor Wolfgang Winkler (University of Hamburg): certification and standards
Luis Muñoz Sebastian (Iberdrola): practical implementation
Pietro Moretto (JRC): safety and risk

16.00 – 16.30: Coffee Break

16.30 – 17.15: Groups discussions around the top three themes from all those identified in the project presentations, including:

Understanding the challenges in more detail
The key contributing factors
What solutions have been tried
What worked, what didn’t
What are the outstanding issues – gaps in knowledge / ability

17:15 – 18.00: Report back information from each group leading to a general discussion, in particular focussing on potential solutions to the outstanding problems.
