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 Rigenergia (May 25 to 27, 2012) was presented the hydrogen powered plane developed by the Politecnico of Torino designed by the engineer Giulio Romeo and implemented thanks to the collaboration among a dozen companies and institutions involved in the project Enica FC  (Environmentally Friendly Inter City Aircraft powered by Fuel Cells) of the European Communities.

The aircraft, the first in Italian history to move thanks to hydrogen, is equipped with an electric engine 40 kW while the gaseous hydrogen feeds the 20 kW fuel cells that turn the propeller. In case of need the aircraft may take the necessary energy from a lithium polymer battery pack that supports the need for energy during takeoff
