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

Be part of the Energy Transition and provide your feedback on the draft ETIP SNET Implementation Plan 2017- 2020 (IP 17-20) before August 10, 2017! The ETIP SNET IP 17-20 aims at listing the short-term priorities for research and innovation (R&I) in relation with the Smart Networks for the Energy Transition. It is based upon the ETIP-SNET R&I roadmap 2017-2026 which specifies the long-term R&I targets for the evolution of the European energy system. The roadmap was published in January 2017. The consultation aims at getting the feedback from all stakeholders involved in the transition of the energy system in Europe, so as to ensure that forthcoming RD&I priorities are funded according to the sectors needs in the coming years. The draft IP 2017-2020 currently includes a number of RD&I topics clustered according to ETIP SNET Roadmap structure and then broken down into functional objectives. Since 2016 the EHA is part of the ETIP Smart Networks for Energy Transition (SNET)  to help guide Research, Development & Innovation (RD&I) to support Europe’s energy transition.
