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

Statoil will be joining forces with Gasunie and Vattenfall/Nuon to facilitate the use of hydrogen in the Magnum power station in Eemshaven, Groningen Northern Netherlands. By 2023, Nuon aims to have made one of the three units of the power station suitable for hydrogen. On July 7 2017 Statoil announced that it has been awarded a concession Statoil in which it will be responsible for the production and supply of hydrogen. To this end, Norwegian natural gas will be converted into hydrogen and CO2. The CO2 will be stored underground, off the Norwegian coast. Gasunie is examining how the hydrogen can be transported to the Magnum power station and, if necessary, stored temporarily. Once the first natural gas station has been made suitable for hydrogen, it can serve as an example for other stations.
