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

As Latvia has taken up the EU presidency this first half year of 2015 the EHA would like to feature the FC and H2 activities in Latvia of the Latvian Hydrogen Association, that has been a national association member of the EHA since 2007. Spurred by the relentless efforts of its founder Dr.phys. Janis Kleperis, Head of Hydrogen Energy Materials laboratory at the Institute of Solid State Physics at University of Latvia, the association since 2005 gathers researchers and industry to  promote recognition of hydrogen technologies and members of Latvian Hydrogen Association in Latvia and Europe and to make connection between institutions working in this field all across the Europe. The association has facilitated the participation of the City of Riga in the second HIT2corridors project, co-funded by the EU TEN T project, that is developing national implementation plans for hydrogen refuelling stations build up around the Baltic Sea. The website of the association provides information about Latvian researchers and publications  that give a good overview of the main area of FC and H2 expertise in Latvia: form nanomaterial to biohydrogen production to storage topics.
