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 World Hydrogen Energy Conference 2010, that will be held from May 16-21, 2010 in Essen, Germany, has launched its Call for papers. The objective of the 18th World Hydrogen Energy Conference is to promote hydrogen technologies and to identify scientific and strategic issues in the field of hydrogen and fuel cells giving answers based on the most advanced state of the art in science and engineering. Decision makers in politics, industry, research, and finance will be addressed in dedicated strategic sessions of the first conference day. Contributions from international experts will focus on the role and path of hydrogen in the energy economy.The major share of the programme is dedicated to the presentation of cutting-edge research and development on hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. The event,  organized by the the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) Energie Agentur will feature drive and rides, technical tours and a student’s day.
