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

EU Commissioner for Energy, Andris Piebalgs presented the annual EU Sustainable Energy Awards during the  EU Sustainable Energy Week to 6 projects that are part of the EU Sustainable Energy Campaign. The HYFLEET CUTE project, the world’s  biggest hydrogen and fuel cell bus demonstration project, was the winner in the category “Demonstration and Dissemination”.
