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

Air Products recently announced plans to install the UK’s first mobile hydrogen fuelling station with dual-pressure fuelling capability. It will also be the UK’s only mobile hydrogen station capable of refuelling buses. This milestone project will be an important next step as the potential for a UK hydrogen economy moves ever closer: the station’s 700-bar hydrogen fuelling capability is pivotal in attracting demonstrations of vehicles. This is because many of the major automotive manufacturer’s vehicles now store hydrogen at this higher pressure to enable them to achieve greater range between refuellings.  Air Products is leading the consortium involved in this initiative, which includes Transport for London and the UK’s premier vehicle testing facility – Millbrook Proving Ground – where the station is based. The project is partly funded by the Technology Strategy Board and the Department for Transport’s Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Grant Programme, which is administered by Cenex, the UK Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies. “As a global market-leader in hydrogen fuelling – involved in many UK projects including fuelling London buses and black cabs – we’re able to deploy our innovative technologies and expertise around the world,” commented Ian Williamson, Hydrogen and Bio Energy Systems director Air Products and president of the EHA. The station will be deployed at selected sites across the UK and will be able to fuel a wide range of vehicles to desired pressures. For more information visit the Air Products site.
