Hydrogen Storage

The research in the division aims at developing new carrier materials for hydrogen mobile and stationary storage, as well as for hydrogen delivery. For mobile hydrogen storage, the material based storage system must meet the needs of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in terms of volume, weight percent hydrogen, cost, fast charging and discharging, and durability with high well-to-wheel energy efficiency. Hydrogen delivery systems based on hydrogen-absorbing materials are focused on cost effective truck transport of large amounts of hydrogen. Material based stationary hydrogen storage applications must be more cost effective and energy efficient than conventional pressurized gaseous hydrogen storage or uniquely meet particular requirements of specific stationary applications.
