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

The leaders of the main political groups in European Parliament have committed  to a review of its output of greenhouse gasses in order to cut its carbon footprint by 30% by 2020.  Around 2/3 of the Parliament’s footprint comes from the use of electricity, gas and transport. Buildings and IT equipment make up 19% of the footprint according to an in-house study commissioned for the Parliament’s Bureau. The main opportunities suggested would require action in the areas of energy use, IT, building infrastructure and transport. The Chair of Parliament’s new Environmental Policy Working Group, Green MEP Gérard Onesta, said at a hearing of the EP  Environment Committee: “The present situation is not very good but when you travel a lot, you spend a lot of energy. We are at the very beginning of a green revolution. We want to be an example – it is not only about voting but applying.” The EHA has facilitated meetings for the techncial staff of the EU Parliament in collaboration with EHA industry members to inform them about the use of hydrogen and fuel cell applications.
