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, Directorate General for the Environment is hosting  the 11th European Forum on Eco-Innovation that will take place on 11 and 12 October in Helsinki and Lahti, Finland.

The 11th Forum will be dedicated to ‘Working with emerging economies for green growth’

The objectives of this forum are to: identify global opportunities for eco-innovation and for green trade between developed and developing nations; review practical examples of making trade work on the ground; and pinpoint the challenges and generate recommendations for policies that create a new platform to increase the global green market. The outcomes will contribute to the development of the EU position at the Rio+20 conference.

This forum is jointly organised by the Finnish Ministry of the Environment and the European Commission, with the support of the Lahti Science and Business Park.
