Novel efficient solid storage for hydrogen

Objective

The proposed IP would drive forward the research and development of solid storage of hydrogen for vehicle propulsion and associated distribution functions. The proposed work programme will cover porous storage systems (particularly at reduced temperatures) , regenerative hydrogen stores (such as the borohydrides) and solid hydrides having reversible hydrogen storage and improved gravimetric storage performance. Initially, two categories of reversible stores will be investigated - light/complex hydrides, such as imides and intermetallic systems involving magnesium, although further categories may be included later. In all cases, the performance of different possible systems will be compared by a standards laboratory (working in collaboration with the US DoE st andardisation activity). Further, etforts will be made to understand the mechanisms involved by innovative modelling activities. The organisation of the IP will include the development of a Virtual Laboratory concept, the exchange of specialised staff betw een participating laboratories and appropriate training activities. When promising new materials are identified, industrial collaborators will be brought in to upscale the material production, develop appropriate demonstration storage tanks and test out th e prototype stores in practical conditions.
