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

Starting 50 years ago without heating in its offices and laboratories, Benoit Potier, president of Air Liquide, presented at Air Liquide’s Advanced Technology golden anniversary in Sassenage, Grenoble, the company’s efforts to contribute to the world’s new energy and materials challenges.  In the presence of the French minister of Education and Research, Geneviève Fiorosi, he stressed Air Liquide’s aim to stay “focused and audacious”. The event offered a Drive and Ride in Daimlers F-CELL and Opel’s Hydrogen4 vehicles. Air Liquide showcased its mobile station the same week at the Drive and Ride at the EU Parliament in Strasbourg. In Sassenage the group is working on hydrogen refuelling stations as well as stationary and portable micro fuel cells.
