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

The German electronics group Siemens has announced that it is joining the Clean Energy Partnership, Europe’s largest demonstration project for hydrogen mobility.

The electronics group is supporting the CEP with hydrogen production technology developed specifically for the initiative, and thereby making a significant contribution to achieving the CEP’s goals. In particular, these are to test the efficiency of hydrogen production from renewable sources in everyday operations, to ensure fast and safe fuelling, and demonstrate the operation of efficient near-series production hydrogen vehicles in everyday use.

The Clean Energy Partnership project combines the know-how of transport and energy industry leaders such as BMW, Daimler, Ford, GM/Opel, Linde Group, Royal Dutch Shell, Total, Toyota, Volkswagen Group and others. The main goal is to provide sustainable and efficient alternatives to fossil fuel power, aiming at hydrogen as the future of energy supply for emission-free mobility.
