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: 16 October, 2012   Where: Palais des Academies, Rue Ducale 1, Brussels

On 16 October 2012, HyER will hold a public Conference at the Palais des Académies, in Brussels. Organised within the framework of its General Assembly (16-17 October), the event aims to inform  stakeholders on the increasing impact of the HyER projects on EU policy and explore how HyER can best serve the EU regions’ objectives in the field of hydrogen, fuel cells and electro-mobility through an EU support framework. HyER’s newest members will present their activities and future collaborative plans on clean urban mobility. European Commission’s Director-General for Transport Matthias Ruete, Niedersachsen’s Secretary of State of the Ministry of Environment Ulla Ihnen and Solvay’s President Jean-Marie Solvay are some of the confirmed speakers.

The event will be combined with a parliamentary luncheon organised by the region of Niedersachsen.
