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: 4 November, 2015

The meeting will be hosted by Rijkswaterstaat and will be opened by Floris Mulder who will explain the main findings of the study and the tool. After this Consortium 2.0 will present the study and the HRS-FCEV business case simulation tool, which is designed to help local governments and entrepreneurs. (HRS = hydrogen refueling station; FCEV = Fuel-Cell Electric Vehicle)

The tool gives the insights and the results of the project show:

  • the way to customer demand
  • how number of or capacity of HRSs and FCEVs are linked
  • the link between affordable hydrogen and funds to co-finance the introduction phase
  • that the total investment and the environmental goals of city or region are matched

After the presentation, the focus of the meeting will be discussions and exchange of ideas and experience, which will result in deeper insights, feedback to the simulation tool and a great foundation for the ongoing work within hydrogen as a transportation fuel. During and after the meeting it is possible to feel and drive a FCEV.
