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
When: 14 July, 2014

After the official launch of the second program of the FCH JU and its Infoday on the first call for proposals in Brussels on July 10, Italy will kick off a first FCH JU II Infoday in Milan organized by the Federation of Scientific and Technical Associations, FAST in cooperation the Italian Hydrogen and Fuel cell Association H2IT and the local Enterprise Europe Network lat FAST.

The second part of the FCH JU  II is open for business as of June 27 and its resources , assured 50% by the European Commission for the period 2014-2020, increased to 665 million Euro. A similar amount resources must be guaranteed by industry and research. Objectives are: costs reduction and raise of the length as well as efficacy of the fuel cells and technologies for hydrogen production; proof of the storage capacity of the renewable energies through hydrogen; reduction of the use of specific rare materials.

Within its activities to support the Enterprise Europe Network, FAST is proposing this presentation meeting for the call of proposal 2014 of the new programme with the cooperation of H2It with the aim to give knowledge of contents and procedure of participation, stimulate the Italian operators to get benefits from the new opportunities and interact with other potential partners in order to share and present successful proposals.

The participation in Brussels and Milan is free.
