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 French Environment Minister Jean-Louis Borloo on Jul y 27, presented a national strategy for sustainable development, for the period 2010-2013. The new strategy identifies nine strategic challenges following the French green bill, the Grenelle de l’environment announced in 2007, which sets out a series of commitments and objectives for environmental policy. The strategy includes support for the development of environmental labelling for  consumer products and supporting companies in their eco-design efforts to double by 2012 the sale of products carrying an eco-label.
The strategy also includes indications for  industrial policy including on  renewable energy, green chemistry, recycling and carbon capture and storage as well as for environmentally and socially sustainable agricultural production.
