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: 19 December, 2011

The Après-midi H2 conference will take place December 19th 2011 at the Luxembourg Palace Paris, France. The event is organized by the pHyrenees, a local hydrogen organization representing the French region of Midi Pyrénées. High-Level decision makers and industry representatives will gather at the meeting to exchange views on status and opportunities.

During the event, HyER Chair, Andreas Ziolek, will present the Broadened HyER partnership, its new activities, and will outline the association’s future plans.  Mr. Pierre Etienne Franc from Air Liquide will deliver a speech on the role of hydrogen in the European renewable energy policy. Mr. Guillaume Cros from the Regional Council of the Midi Pyrénées will elaborate on the use of hydrogen in this region.

Participants will also have a chance to check out number of electric and hydrogen powered vehicles which will be on display at the venue’s parking during the event.
