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 Hydrogen Energy Horizon programme brings together the achievements of the French programme launched in 2008 contributing to the emergence of a sustainable and competitive hydrogen energy industry in France and Europe.

The first generation of newly developed and deployed systems meeting the power needs of isolated sites, electricity storage, backup and recharging of electric vehicle fleets, especially forklift trucks. More than 280 systems all generating electricity from hydrogen.
