The results of the second energy R&D programme of the Commission of the European Communities (1978-83) in the field of hydrogen as an energy vector are summarized in this book, in the form of extended abstracts (sometimes completed by a few figures) of the final reports of shared cost research contracts concluded by the Commission in order to implement this programme. The book covers the three main themes of the research programme: (i) electrolytic hydrogen production; (ii) hydrogen storage, transport and use; (iii) thermochemical hydrogen production. This book, the second one dedicated to the dissemination of extended abstracts of this programme, gives an updated view of the status of R&D in the fields covered and, in a certain sense, constitutes a global summing-up of nearly eight years of research in the field of hydrogen as an energy vector. In an appendix, and for all contracts, the contractual data, the report number, the cost of the contract, its duration as well as the name of the main research scientist are reported for easy reference and to foster eventual further scientific exchanges and developments.
