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
Paris Orly will be the first airport in France with a public hydrogen station. Designed and installed by Air Liquide and ADP, with the support of the FCH JU1  it is facilitating the deployment of “Hype”, the world’s first hydrogen-powered taxi fleet. The Parisian taxi fleet “Hype”, the world’s first ever taxi fleet powered by hydrogen, was launched by the start-up STEP (Société du Taxi Électrique Parisien) in 2015, in partnership with Air Liquide. Currently powered by an Air Liquide station located in the heart of the French capital, at Cours Albert 1er near Pont de l’Alma, the fleet counts more than 50 hydrogen-powered vehicles and plans to grow to 600 taxis by 2020. Air Liquide will continue to support the growth of this offer by opening new hydrogen stations around Paris in 2018, notably one near Versailles, and another at the Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport.
