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 completely energy independent catamaran that will start its would tour in April 2017 from Paris and will travel five years to make 101 stops around the world has been making waves on social media, see @H2Euro. To achieve energy independence, it will use solar panels in combination with PEM electrolizer to make hydrogen as a way to store energy. H2 will be stored in type III reservoirs and then PEM CEA fuel cells will be used to transform it back to energy when needed. About fifteen companies will take part in the project. The goal is to test technologies and to promote the use of clean fuels. Currently, the 30 meters long and 13 m wide boat is under construction at the naval center Jacques Cartier in the French city Saint Malo.
