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 EHA in collaboration with The Regions and Municipalities Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells, HyER (formerly HyRaMP) was present with an exhibition booth at this year’s Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Fair in Hannover. In addition to the exhibition the EHA faciiltiated presentations of the EU projects it is involved in (see under EHA Projects info)  at the Fair’s Public Forum and Technical Forums. The Hanover Fair this year has an interesting new section on “Metropolitan Solutions” where battery cars and energy companies’ recharging infrastructure build-up are dominating the scene. Fuel cell cars of Opel, Daimler, Volkswagen and Toyota were stealing the show though at the Drive and Rides outside the Mobilitec Hall.
