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 European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) with the support of a number of experts has compiled a document titled “EU harmonised terminology for low temperature water electrolysis for energy storage applications” that can be downloaded here.

Any possible comments should be provided to Dr. G. Tsotridis ([email protected]) before the end of March 2018. The official release of this document will take place once the comments of the stakeholders consultation are incorporated.
