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

Fuel Cells 2000 has released ‘The Business Case for Fuel Cells 2011: Energizing America’s Top Companies’, which follows on from last year’s ‘Why Top Companies are Purchasing Fuel Cells Today’. The report offers a brief introduction to fuel cells; their benefits in stationary, warehouse and backup power operations; and fuel cell financing, including power purchase agreements. It then gives concise case studies of 34 companies that have notably taken advantage of fuel cell solutions over the last year, including summaries of activities, found benefits, customer opinions, cost benefits and images of installations where available. These companies are largely retailers, warehouses and office businesses. It also includes useful appendices of fuel cell forklift deployments and fuel cells installed at retail and grocery sites in America.
