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

Greenpeace Energy and Gasunie have signed a cooperation agreement for the development of a ‘windgas’ solution in Northern Germany. Greenpeace Energy is to construct a wind-powered electrolyser, the hydrogen from which will be injected into Gasunie’s natural gas network. The necessary infrastructure for the production and supply of hydrogen through the gas network, including the Greenpeace Energy electrolyser, should be in operation in 2013. Specific details of the electrolyser system are yet to be revealed.
