STORAGE OF HYDROGEN: ALTERNATIVE PRESSURE ENCLOSURE DEVELOPMENT

Project description

An innovative hydrogen fuel tank is energising the electric vehicle market

Transportation is one of the main contributors to emissions and human activity-related climate change. Fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) could make an important contribution to the transition to cleaner forms of energy. Unlike other electric vehicles that rely on batteries that must be charged somehow, FCEVs use hydrogen to make their own electricity. Taking hydrogen from a storage tank and oxygen from the air, they produce water, heat and electricity. The EU-funded SH2APED project will develop and test an innovative flat hydrogen storage system for consumer vehicles with substantially enhanced safety and performance at a reduced price. It could help electrify the FCEV market, literally and metaphorically.
