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

UK-based alkaline fuel cell developer AFC Energy is to lead a consortium of organisations running a new EU project, LASER-CELL, backed by €2.9 million of funding.  The AFC Energy-led consortium is to receive €1.4 million of this from the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).

LASER-CELL will run alongside AFC Energy’s current development programme and will develop innovative technologies to enhance high-volume production of alkaline fuel cells, backed up by life-cycle and market analysis. AFC Energy will receive €405,600 of the total funding.
