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 3rd International Conference on Hydrogen Safety (ICHS3) is jointly organised by IA HySafe and IEA HIA who mandated the CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission) for organizing the 3rd edition in Ajaccio, France, with the assistance of Université de Corse and Università di Pisa.

The conference will be held in Ajaccio, Corsica on September 16-18, 2009, and is being organized in collaboration with the principal EU and international projects on hydrogen safety. The ICHS will focus on the improvement, knowledge, and understanding of hydrogen safety to foster removal of safety-related barriers to implementation of hydrogen as an energy carrier.

The conference will improve public awareness and trust in hydrogen technologies by communicating a better understanding of both the risks associated with hydrogen and their management. Since the ICHS will focus on safety issues and measures to encourage more extensive use of hydrogen-based technologies, its contents will be different from other hydrogen conferences. All contributions to be included in the ICHS will be evaluated exclusively in the light of their scientific content and relevance to hydrogen safety.
