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: 1 August, 2011

Participants are invited to attend and submit a poster for the Fifth International Conference on Polymer Batteries and Fuel Cells (PBFC-5) which will be held at Argonne National Laboratory on August 1-5, 2011. PBFC, is an international bi-annual conference covering critical issues in polymer electrolyte batteries and fuel cells and alternates locations between Asia, Europe, and the United States (previous meeting sites were Korea, Italy, Las Vegas, and Japan).

This fifth in the series of conferences will focus on the topics of lithium polymer electrolytes, electrode materials for lithium polymer and lithium-air batteries, alkaline-exchange and proton-exchange membranes for fuel cells, polymer electrolyte-electrocatalyst interfaces, noble and non-noble metal electrocatalysts, and electrolyte and electrode degradation.

Registration closes on July 15, 2011.
