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

H2IT organised a seminar on “Italy and the JTI”. A key note speech of Andre Martin, executive director of the FCH Instruct office, outlined the JTI activities and the development of the German Hydrogen Strategy. This led to a vivid discussion of Italian priorities. Guided by a representative of the Italian Ministry for the Environment Pierpaolo Garibaldi,  the discussion focused on the best way of going forward to ensure that hydrogen and fuel cell applications contribute to Italian carbon reduction efforts in the most effective way and how to link those activities with the JTI.
