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: 22 April, 2015

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) is launching its first initiative on Smart Specialisation in the domain of Fuel Cells and Hydrogen technology together with the European Commission and the active support of Rhône-Alpes region. The workshop will take place on 22 and 23 April 2015 at the Hôtel de Région in Lyon, France. It is hosted by Région Rhône-Alpes and organised in collaboration with CEA and the JRC Smart Specialization Platform, Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS).
