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

Under the 7th Framework Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration (FP7), DG Energy published on 20 July 2010 a call for proposals opening several topics to support the SET-Plan European Industrial Initiatives. The Energy National Contact Points organise on 17 November 2010 a Brokerage Event in Brussels, for triggering partnerships of entities intending to submit a proposal. The programme and registration modalities can be found on the event’s website. An important opic on eenrgy storage is included and the EHA is currently investigating potential consortia to include hydrogen storage solutions in one of the proposals.
