This project receives funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) under grant agreement No. 826352. The  FCH JU receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, Hydrogen Europe and Hydrogen Europe Research.

Renewable energy e.g. photovoltaic and wind energy has the disadvantage that it is not permanently available. The demand does not correspond to the energy production often. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a new efficient energy storage system. A promising attempt is the storage of hydrogen. An electrolyser run by solar power and wind energy separates water into oxygen and hydrogen. The produced hydrogen is stored in metal hydrides. A fuel cell can produce electric power by reconversion of hydrogen and oxygen into water. The properties of chosen phase change materials are used for the absorption and desorption of hydrogen. The goal of this project is to develop a system to store 50 kg of hydrogen in metal hydrides at low pressure and temperature. The connection of hydrogen and heat management will improve the efficiency of storing renewable energy.
