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

Hydrogenics Corporation will supply two HySTAT(TM)60 electrolyzers for a hydrogen fueling station to be based in Oslo, Norway.

The electrolyzers will support a complete electrolysis-based fueling station as part of the HyNor Oslo Bus project. The electrolyzers, capable of producing up to 260 kilograms per day of pure hydrogen are anticipated to be delivered in 2011 and will be based at the Rosenholm bus garage in a suburb of Oslo, Norway. The hydrogen fueling station is anticipated to commence service in 2012 and provide hydrogen to operate fuel cell buses for a five year period. The fueling station is part of CHIC, the Clean Hydrogen in European Cities Project, an essential next step leading to the full market commercialization of fuel cell hydrogen powered buses. Additional information regarding the CHIC initiative can be found at ( http://chic-project.eu ). The HyNor Oslo Bus project will reduce noise and improve the air quality in the Oslo area, in addition to reducing harmful emissions from public transport. The hydrogen fueling station will deliver 100% green hydrogen, thanks to the use of green electricity, further demonstrating that a complete carbon free chain using electrolysis has its place in the future energy mix for transport applications.
