An innovative approach for renewable energy storage by a combination of hydrogen carriers and heat storage

Project description

Novel solid-state hydrogen storage facilitating the energy transition

Energy storage is essential to the full exploitation of renewable energy sources given their intermittent availability. Hydrogen has the highest energy density of all known substances, about three times higher than diesel or gasoline. However, in the gas state, the volumetric density of hydrogen is very low and a strong compression is necessary to store it, with significant energy consumption. The EU-funded HyCARE project is developing a novel way to store hydrogen in the solid-state, using metal hydrides. It will also store energy as heat through phase change materials, boosting energy resources and efficiency. The combined solid-state hydrogen and heat storage tanks will be integrated with technology to both produce hydrogen for storage and use it.
