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: 11 September, 2012   Where: Hammamet, Tunisia. The exact venue TBC

The Euro-Mediterranean Hydrogen Technologies Conference will take place on September 11-14, 2012 in Hammamet, Tunisia. The conference is organised in the framework of ETRERA project funded by the EU through FP7. The project has been set up to reinforce CRTEn, a Tunisian high-quality research centre working on renewable energy issue.

EmHyTeC aims to promote research and application of hydrogen technologies to set up a  sustainable, secure and  competitive energy system in the  Euro-Mediterranean area. EmHyTeC is an opportunity for researchers and entrepreneurs to  exchange ideas and experience on the following topics:
