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

Under the Clean Hydrogen In European Cities (CHIC) 3 Fuel Cell Hydrogen (FCH) buses are now in service in London and by the end of 2011 there will be a total of 8 FCH buses running in London.  The buses are now running on the RV1 route– which takes passengers in Covent Garden, the Tower of London and the South Bank.

The new buses, which were designed specially for London, are now carrying passengers. If you get to ride one of these CHIC buses keep in mind that they produces water vapour from its tailpipe (as all hydrogen powered vehicles) and can operate for more than 18 hours without needing to refuel!

Transport for London, the CHIC partner base in London, is reminding passengers that the application of these buses will provide better quality breathing air to London residents.

Overall, it’s a clean ride for Londoners.
