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 Governor of Tokyo is planning to turn the 2020 Olympics a legacy for hydrogen energy. “The first Tokyo Olympics, 50 years ago, left a bullet-train system as a legacy. I want to leave a hydrogen society as a legacy for the next Tokyo Olympics,” Gov. Yoichi Masuzoe said in an interview. The plan is to develop the system to power Olympic buildings and transportation systems by hydrogen, expected to cost Tokyo around $330 million through 2020. As part of the initiative, thousands of hydrogen-powered cars, buses will be deployed around the Olympic Village, including a network of fueling stations. Furthermore, Japanese authorities are also considering building a pipeline to transport hydrogen. The broader green development plan of Japan is expected to reduce its reliance on imported fossil fuels.
