Hydrogen Storage

Storing hydrogen for renewable energy technologies can be challenging, especially for intermittent resources such as solar and wind. Whether for stationary, portable, or transportation applications, cost-effective, high-density energy storage is necessary for enabling the technologies that can change our energy future and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Hydrogen can play an important role in transforming our energy future if hydrogen storage technologies are improved.

With support from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), NREL develops comprehensive storage solutions, with a focus on hydrogen storage material properties, storage system configurations, interface requirements, and well-to-wheel analyses. NREL also provides technical input for DOE's Hydrogen Storage Engineering Center of Excellence.
