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

Having started in 2010 with the aim to create renewable energy using only sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide, the Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis (JCAP) and California Institute of Technology (CalTech) say they have done just that. The team developed a solar-driven system for creating hydrogen fuels, which is in the form of an artificial leaf and mimics photosynthesis. For more info please click here.
