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

On 27 September 2012, HyER along with 26 other partners gathered and in the presence of the FCH JU kicked off the ene.field project. HyER is acting as dissemination partner.

The ene.field project is an EU co-funded project bringing together 9 European micro fuel cell Combined Heat and Power (micro FC-CHP) manufacturers who will deliver trials across all of the available technologies. By learning the practicalities of installing and supporting a fleet of fuel cells with real customers and with the support of 24 utilities, housing providers and municipalities, ene.field is a flagship partnership towards commercialisation of micro FC-CHP installations. The project will deploy approximately 1,000 residential installations in 12 EU Member States, establish the macro-economics and CO2 savings of the technologies in the European markets, and assess the socio-economic barriers to widespread deployment of micro FC-CHP.
