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
When: 3 September, 2014   Where: Aix en Provence, France

Not all fire fighters and first responsders are familiar with the ins and outs of the use of Hydrogen and Fuel Cell (FCH) technologies and applications. An adequate training is therefore required to provide knowledge and essential skills on how to handle potential incidents/accidents at FCH systems and infrastructure; how to protect the public without putting First Responder’ own life at risk. The “First International Workshop on Hydrogen Safety Training for First Responders” will take place on the 3rd and 4th of September 2014 at the Franch Firefighters Academy, ENSOSP site in Aix en Provence, France. The workshop is organized within the frame of HyResponse, an EC funded project. It will gather the International First Responders community with the view to present/exchange ideas and get feedback on the hydrogen safety training initiatives under construction. International keynote speakers are invited. FCH technologies will be exhibited. An event not to miss!! The Programme at the HyResponse website. The HyResponse project, co-funded by the FCH JU, is developing an interactive 3D training program. ThE EHA in cooperation with FAST is supporting the dissemination of the project
