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 HyER CHIC (Clean Hydrogen In European Cities) project analysed the experiences on authorisation procedures for hydrogen infrastructures and buses from Hamburg (DE), Cologne (DE), Whistler (CA), Oslo (NO), Aarau (CH), London (UK), Milan (IT) and Bolzano (IT) and produced a report on bus & H2 refuelling infrastructure certification.

The report takes a look at the refueling infrastructure and, in particular, the stakeholders involved in the issuing procedure, the laws and regulations applied, the permits acquired, the safety and technical standards, the methodologies for risks, the inspection protocol and the contingency planning, as well as the cost and the duration of the process. In addition, the report examines if the EU regulation for the homologation of the buses was applied in all cities.
