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

This event will provide you with a great opportunity to meet and discuss the upcoming 2nd call and form partnerships with colleagues from Industry and Research. Please refer to the attached Draft Agenda for detailed information about the timeframe of the event.
