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

A new station, located in Helmond (Netherlands) and opened last month, is owned by WaterstofNet with support from the European Interreg IV Flanders-Netherlands program. It was built by Ballast Nedam and features an electrolysis system designed and built by Hydrogenics. It will be mainly used to fuel new prototypes of hydrogen buses and a small fleet of hydrogen-powered garbage trucks.

The fueling facility also has a 20 ft containerized water electrolyzer that includes a water treatment system, gas purification, cooling system and a 350 bar dispenser to supply up to 65 kg of clean hydrogen fuel per day. Moreover, within the next few months the station will be expanded to include a 700 bar dispenser to make it suitable for passenger cars.
