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 H2FC project ” Integrating European Infrastructure to support science and development of Hydrogen- and Fuel Cell Technologies towards European Strategy for Sustainable, Competitive and Secure Energy”, acronym H2FC, is a project funded within the call FP7-INFRASTRUCTURES-2011-1.

It aims to integrate the European hydrogen and fuel cell R&D community. The project brings the hydrogen community together with the fuel cell community, thus covering the entire cycle of hydrogen production, storage, distribution and use in fuel cells.

The project offers free transnational access to more than 50 laboratories and facilities with expertise in fuel cells and hydrogen production, hydrogen storage and hydrogen safety. Further information, including details of the participating organisations, and how to apply for access, can be found on the H2FC website: www.h2fc.eu.
