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

Germany could be the first country to have a hydrogen filling station network for hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles.

That’s because the number of hydrogen-fuelled fillings stations is set to rise to 50 by the end of this year.

Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI) – the economic development agency of the Federal Republic of Germany – claims by 2023 the aim is to have around 400 stations at least every 90 kilometres on Germany’s autobahn network between densely populated areas.

A further ten in each metropolitan region would see the network stretch from the North Sea to the Alps.
