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 commemoration of National Hydrogen Day, October 8, 2016  (1.008), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released the 2015 Fuel Cell Technologies Market Report showing shipments of  60,000 fuel cells, totaling roughly 300 megawatts (MW),  worldwide in 2015 a more than 65% increase compared to 2014. The DOE Energy announced a notice of intent to invest $30 million, subject to appropriations, to advance fuel cell and hydrogen technologies. These projects will support the President’s Materials Genome Initiative and advanced manufacturing priorities.
