The production of light vehicles with zero emissions, optimum fuel cell efficiency and using a totally renewable fuel source is dependent on the availability of anon-vehicle hydrogen store. Novel carbon and metallic hydrogen store materials will be investigated to identify one capable of storing greater than 7-wt % hydrogen. A production, process will be developed for the material. The project will lead to a hydrogen store based on novel carbon based materials capable of supplying a fuel cell with output power suitable for a commercially viable light vehicle.
