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 public hearing is key step in the CARS 21 process, ensuring that a broad range of stakeholders can contribute to recommendations in the Interim and Final Report.

By means of this public hearing, the Commission seeks to engage a broader group of stakeholders into reflection on the topics selected for the Interim and Final Reports and contribute to policy recommendations, which will be presented in the report. While as a general rule, the CARS 21 meetings are limited to the group members and, occasionally, invited experts, the Commission is looking for the input from a wider range of stakeholders –in view of the societal importance of the topics discussed.
