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: 20 June, 2016

This year’s TEN T Days will take place on June 20-22, 2016 in Rotterdam.

The TEN-T forms the backbone of the European transport system with nine corridors across the EU. Since 2014 there is specific financing for the ‘urban nodes’ (i.e. the cities on the core network).

  • The 2014 call has been evaluated and seven urban nodes proposals were retained for around €50 million.
  • The 2015 call was published in November 2014, and covered the cohesion countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia).

Up to €300 million will be spent in total over 2014-20 on urban nodes.

On the second day, June 21 in the afternoon a session on Innovation along TEN T road corridors and one on Urban Nodes will take place>

– Innovation on the TEN-T: why and where?

– Urban nodes on TEN-T corridors: challenging prospects
