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

European Hydrogen Association facilitated a POWER-UP project presentation at the FC [email protected] and Battery Group Exhibit during HANNOVER MESSE 2015, the largest hydrogen, fuel cell and battery exhibition in Europe, at its own booth and during the technical forum session.

POWER-UP is developing the world’s largest alkaline fuel cell power system. It is the leading project to generate and supply electricity using surplus hydrogen. AFC Energy the project coordinator supplies the alkaline fuel cell that will be fed with the hydrogen produced at a major chemical plant in Stade, Germany.

More information:

  • POWER-UP is €11.5 million project
  • Co-financed by €6.1 million by the EU Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU)
  • Duration: 51 months (April 2013 – June 2017)
  • Installation due middle of 2015
