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

In recognition of exceptional developments in one of the new century’s most fascinating technologies, and to stimulate further innovation, the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Environment and the Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation are – for the ninth time – inviting entries for the f-cell award, sponsored by the State of Baden-Württemberg.The f-cell award is presented in recognition of new fuel cell technology with the potential for practical application. Entrants can submit innovative solutions involving mobile, portable and stationary deployment of fuel cells. Entries can comprise individual components, entire fuel cell systems, related peripherals (fuel and storage technologies), or advances in the use of fuel cells in mobile, portable or stationary applications. Deadline is July 15, 2009. Winners will be announced at the f-cell Congress, Septemeber 28-28, 2009 in Stuttgart. Please visit f-cell award website for details.
