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

At the Annual press conference of the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association, DWV, at the Presss office of the German Parliament on Febraury 18, 2009, Peter Froeschle of Daimler AG explained that Daimler is developing battery and fuel cell vehicles to power  future transport applications. He emphasized that battery and fuel cell cars will not be competing but will rather complement each other in range and capacity. Andreas Ziolek of EnergieAgentur NRW in Düsseldorf and chairman of the 26 Regions and Municpalities Partenrship, HyER (formerly HyRaMP), hosted by the EHA, presented the efforts of the regions to contribute to the EU Joint Undertaking for hydrogen and fuel cells.  Joachim Wolf, DWV’s president listed 10 key requests for political action:
1. Development of a legal support framework for the effective integration of H2 as an energy carrier;
2. Intelligent and sustainable use of all energy sources;
3. A comprehensive political strategy to deploy regenerative energy;
4. Tax exemption for H2 as an energy carrier;
5. Efficient use of all primary energy sources;
6. Focus on H2 and Electricity as universal energy carriers;
7. Support for technology development;
8. Development of new energy concepts with incentives for renewable energy stored in H2;
9. Clear and broad Interministerial Energy Policy;
10. Support for H2 awareness by the general public (and politicians!)
