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

Air Liquide, which has installed more than 60 hydrogen stations worldwide, was in charge for the design and installation of the hydrogen filling station in Normandy town Saint-Lô. Saint-Lô has become the first in France to open a hydrogen filling station, which will fuel council vehicles. In France, the implementation of this hydrogen filling station is a first step in the deployment of an infrastructure making it possible to provide this natural energy.
