Hydrogen Storage: The Key Challenge Facing a Hydrogen Economy

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The development of a viable hydrogen storage system is one of the key challenges that must be met prior to the establishment of a true hydrogen economy. Current hydrogen storage options, such as compressed gas and liquid hydrogen, fall short of meeting vehicle manufacturers' goals for safe and efficient energy storage. The most viable long-term alternative to these options is solid-state storage, which has been proven both safe and efficient. The Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC), with over 50 years of hydrogen storage expertise and over 25 years of expertise in solid-state storage, has assembled a world-class team to meet ... continued below

Description

The development of a viable hydrogen storage system is one of the key challenges that must be met prior to the establishment of a true hydrogen economy. Current hydrogen storage options, such as compressed gas and liquid hydrogen, fall short of meeting vehicle manufacturers' goals for safe and efficient energy storage. The most viable long-term alternative to these options is solid-state storage, which has been proven both safe and efficient. The Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC), with over 50 years of hydrogen storage expertise and over 25 years of expertise in solid-state storage, has assembled a world-class team to meet this key challenge. The SRTC team is comprised of distinguished scientists and engineers from national laboratories, leading universities, and major corporate research centers that are actively performing research in hydrogen storage on complex hydrides. Their collective expertise in materials development combined with fundamental science and systems engineering, will provide the synergy to meet the hydrogen storage goals. The team's goal is to develop a hydrogen storage system that meets the 2010 U.S. DOE targets, which includes a system with greater than 6 wt per cent hydrogen.
