International Symposium on Water electrolysis and hydrogen as part of the future Renewable Energy System
Submitted by Claire Castel on Thu, 2012-04-19 17:26
Sustainable, secure and competitive energy supply and transport services are at the heart of the EU2020 strategy towards a low carbon and inclusive economy, geared towards a reduction of 80% of CO2 emissions by 2050. This objective has been endorsed by the European Institutions and Member States. It is widely recognized that a technological shift and the deployment of new clean technologies are critical for a successful transition to such a new sustainable economy.
Hydrogen has the potential of storing virtually unlimited amounts of renewable energy to be converted back into the grid by stationary fuel cells with high efficiency and quick response times, enabling incorporation of large amounts of intermittent solar and wind power into the grid as base load. Here water electrolysis technologies plays a vital role in enabling cost competitive, highly efficient method of producing hydrogen from renewable electricity.
