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

Egmont – Royal Institute for International Relations and the Development Group are convening a series of three EU Energy Symposia followed by a High Level Conference in order to pursue their project on the “Energy Transition: A Multifaceted Challenge for Europe” initiated three years ago.

The 1st Session of the conference will address the challenges for Europe in the run up to COP21 and present the opportunity to analyse the different EU’s bargaining chips for obtaining a well-balanced global climate agreement, such as the targets adopted in the EU Climate and Energy Framework, the commitment to long-term finance, the research and development of low-carbon technologies, as well as the EU’s soft-power approach with respect to its partners.

The 2nd Session will then analyse what are the stakes for Europe in the aftermath of COP21, especially as the EU has a lot to win if the world decides to act seriously on climate change.

10th November 2015, 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, followed by a lunch at the Egmont Palace, 8bis, Place du Petit Sablon, Brussels.
