The European Commission is planning a Communication on energy technologies and innovation in the first half of 2013. As part of the preparation of this Communication a consultation has been published to collect the opinion from all relevant stakeholders. Its purpose is to consult on possible options for a European energy technologies policy and to receive feedback and additional ideas on this proposal. A public consultation by means of this online questionnaire offers the opportunity to all interested stakeholders to express their views in the preparation stage of the Communication.  In the consultation document reference to fuel cell and hydrogen technologies are made including on the role of hydrogen in energy storage (see picture on Enertrag system) The EHA is preparing a response to the consultation; your comments and suggestions are welcome (see below).
