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
When: 12 June, 2014   Where: Essen, Germany

On 12th June, the  fifth joint meeting of the  fuel cell and hydrogen platform NRW will be held in the Gas and Heat-Institut (GWI) in Essen.

Please find the program (in German) here and register to the meeting here.

In addition to the presentation of the findings of the expert group, focus will be on presentations about components of hydrogen and fuel cell systems. The companies new members of the network will have the opportunity to introduce themselves for the first time. Among other things, we look forward to listen to the contributions of Gebr. Becker GmbH from Wuppertal and Leopold Kostal GmbH & Co. KG from Lüdenscheid. The GWI will also showcase its extensive activities on hydrogen, power to gas and fuel cell-CHP along with a visit of its demo house and its  laboratory.

The event is aimed at the network members and is free of charge.
