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 May, 2011

Within the the Cleantech Cluster Event Series, on the 24th of May the London Hydrogen Partnership will collaboratively sponsor the cluster event “Is London creating a Hydrogen cluster for Transport?”

The London Cleantech Cluster Event, on 24 May 2011 will focus on the theme of hydrogen and fuel cells in transport. London already has a fleet of hydrogen buses under the CHIC project – and is introducing black cabs fuelled by hydrogen. This event will explore whether these vehicles are the precursors of a fully fledged hydrogen economy in the city.

Panelists will debate questions such as:

– London is already rolling out a battery electric vehicle charging infrastructure: do we need a hydrogen infrastructure for transport as well?

– What is the role of Transport for London in promoting innovative transport solutions in hydrogen and fuel cell space?

– How is the technology in hydrogen and fuel cells for transport progressing? Is it economically feasible to run a hydrogen or fuel cell vehicle?

– Which London research institutes are focusing on hydrogen and fuel cells? And do they work in unison with the London Authority?
