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

Anticipating the vote in the Council of the EU expected this December, DG Enterprise invited industry to discuss a draft of the implementing measures of the EU Regulation for hydrogen powered vehicles. The EU Commission is accepting further input and comments on this document by January 15, 2009 in preparation of its next meeting on January 27, 2009. The last draft is attached to this newsletter.
