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: 17 September, 2012   Where: Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands

The ESS Science symposium will bring together experts in renewable energy materials and in neutron scattering. The main focus will be on materials for the hydrogen economy (storage and fuel cells), (lithium) battery materials, and heat storage materials (phase change, magneto caloric), i.e. research area’s where neutrons provide particularly strong analysis techniques.
