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 Commission  present a package of proposals to establish integrated European infrastructure networks in the areas of transport, energy and information and communication technologies. This “Connecting Europe” package delivers on the commitments made in the Commission’s Multi-Annual Financial Framework presented in June 2011.

The package consists of a range of legislative and policy proposals, including a Connecting Europe Facility and revised guidelines on transport, energy and ICT.

As part of the package, the Commission will also adopt a proposal for the launch of the pilot phase of the Europe 2020 Project Bond Initiative as announced in Presidnet Barroso’s State of the Union Address.

This is an integrated package of proposals which will all be presented on 19th October.
