COmbined hybrid Solution of Metal HYdride and mechanical Compressors for eXtra Large scale hydrogen refuelling stations

Project description

Turning up the pressure gets results for hydrogen refuelling solutions

Using hydrogen as a fuel has the potential to de-carbonise many sectors that currently rely on hydrocarbons for energy. The transport sector is a particularly promising application, but, in addition to the development of hydrogen-powered vehicles, we must have a hydrogen refuelling infrastructure on a large scale. The compression unit or high-pressure storage unit is the main component of a hydrogen refuelling station. Its function is to increase the energy density or amount of energy in a given volume to make it feasible to keep vehicles mobile over long distances. Storing and supplying fuel for large fleets of buses, trains and trucks is even harder. The EU-funded COSMHYC XL project is developing an innovative scalar and modular compression solution to serve the diverse needs of extra-large hydrogen refuelling stations.
