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

Task 23 on Small Hydrogen Reformers of the IEA Hydrogen Implementation agreement asked the EHA to present EU policy affecting hydrogen installations in Europe. The EHA referred to the ETS and IPPC legislation that is currently being discussed at the EU Parliament and for which the EHA has submitted amendments to facilitate the installation of small reformers. Also the EHA efforts to include hydrogen in the renewable energy targets when it is produced by renewable electricity were presented.
