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, announced on the 1st of November 2011 the release of its advanced generation HyPM® HD (heavy duty) Fuel Cell Power Modules. HyPM HD’s moves toward meeting the demanding performance and form factor requirements of mobility applications. The opportunity in the early-adopting transit and commercial vehicle markets is the initial focus of the advanced generation product introduction.

The advanced HyPM HD Power Module family, achieves power density that range from 30-60% on a volumetric basis and 40-60% on a gravimetric basis when compared to current HyPM products and systems delivering equal power output.

To mark the launch, Models HD-30, HD-90 and HD-180 are available for order immediately with plans to make smaller models available for purchase in the near future.
