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: 23 April, 2012   Where: Athens, Greece

The Transport Research Arena (TRA) Conference to take place April 23-26th is an initiative of its organizing stakeholders, (CEDR, ERTRAC, ERRAC, WATERBORNE and EU) for the promotion of research in the Transport Sector in Europe.

TRA 2012 will focus on all aspects of all surface transport modes with the exception of overseas shipping. It is supported by the main transport industry stakeholders in Europe: the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR), the European Commission (EC), the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC), the European Rail Research Advisory Council (ERRAC), and the European Technology Platform Waterborne (WATERBORNE). TRA 2012 seeks to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the transport sector and, for this reason, addresses all stakeholders in both the public and private sectors and all professionals, regardless of their roles (researchers, practitioners, designers, constructors, operators, administrators etc.). The main theme of TRA 2012 is Sustainable mobility through innovation.
