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 Scottish Cities Alliance (a partnership between seven Scotland’s cities: Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Perth and Stirling) commits to continue working together for the next four years on their Smart Cities and Hydrogen agenda.

The alliance together with Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU) work on commercialisation of hydrogen refuelling infrastructure and deployment of hydrogen fuel cell buses. For the near future this includes further 10 hydrogen fuel cell buses  joining the fleet of Aberdeen in 2018 under Joint Initiative for Hydrogen Vehicles Across Europe (JIVE) and 12 fuel cell buses in Dundee in 2019 under JIVE 2.
