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

Highly committed to the development of hydrogen mobility, Air Liquide has installed a charging station at its Sassenage site in Isère (Rhône-Alpes), which will allow the first users of the HyWay* project to recharge their vehicles with hydrogen. Next fall, a second station will be installed in Grenoble.

Coordinated by the Tenerrdis new energy technologies cluster, HyWay is the first French project whose aim is to deploy fleets of hydrogen-powered electric vehicles. A major project milestone was reached this Wednesday, June 10, with the delivery of the first 21 Renault Kangoo ZE-H2** utility vehicles to Grenoble. These vehicles constitute the largest electric vehicle fleet equipped with a hydrogen-powered range extender currently deployed in Europe.
