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: 24 November, 2010

The Norwegian Hydrogen Association, HyNor will be holding their Yearly Hydrogen Conference on November 24th 2010 at Kunnskapsbyen Conference Center,  Kjeller, Norway.

2010 marks the first year of HyNor’s second phase. We have seen the existing stations have gone into a normal operating phase, with good up-time. In 2010 the hydrogen boat MF Vågen was put into action in the Bergen harbor, and has been in operation since the summer. There has also been a formidable throughout the year with many new projects, resulting in 2011 becoming the biggest year for hydrogen infrastructure in Norway so far! No less than four new will open next year, one of them being the first lighthouse project on hydroen infrastructure in Europe. The number of hydrogen vehicles on Norwegian roads will also increase with 17 fuel cell cars and 5 fuel cell buses. All this ensures that the HyNor project remains as one of the most innovative and alive hydrogen projects in the world.
