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

In a own intiative report on the EU’s Second Strategic Energy Review  that was proposed by the European Commission in November 2008 and includes Energy policy priorities up to 2050 as security of supply, energy efficiency and renewable energy, the European Parliament Industry Committee voted to cut greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%, improve energy efficiency by 35% and bring the share of renewable energies to 60% of the EU’s total energy consumption by 2050. The first Strategic Energy Review, published in 2007 as part of a wider communication on energy and climate, provided the framework for the development of the EU’s ’20-20-20′ policy: 20% less CO2 and 20% more renewable energy by 2020. Targets that were confirmed by all EU Memebr States in March 2007 and translated into the ‘package’ of energy and climate proposals presented by the EU executive on 23 January 2008. The Second Strategic Energy Review includes proposals for tax breaks and procurement support of hydrogen vehicles.
