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

The president of Aragon, Francisco Javier Lambán Montañes, opened the 21st of edition of the World Hydrogen Energy Conference in Zaragoza on June 13, 2016 (see photo with on the left Javier Brey, president of the Spanish Hydorgen Association, AeH2 and vice  presidentof the EHA).

BMW is pointing to the request of their customers to reduce well to wheel zero emissions and  Toyota is implementing its zero emisssion ambition in all aspects of their operations in their 2050 Environmental Challenge. Bjorn Simonsson director of Business Development of NEL, introduced NEL founder Sam Eyde who, in the early 1900’s, who inheritated a waterfall and started power production. H2Logic 75 years later, now owned by NEL, is making sure that already today 50% of the Danish population is only 15km away from a H2 station. The EHA will be reporting form the WHEC all through the week and is organizing its Annual General Meeting as a virtual event on the last day, June 16, to inform its members of the latest developments and decide on its 2016 – 2017 action plan.
