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

BMW has been investing heavily in marketing and promotion over several years to launch its i-branded models; and building a similarly advanced campaign around a LeMans bid is considered to be one way of giving the incipiency of hydrogen fuel cell technology more credibility in the minds of potential car buyers. Another hydrogen-powered model, the BMW 5 Series GT prototype, will be rolling out this year at Detroit Auto Show.
