Hydrogen Storage

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's current activities include quantifying storage characteristics of novel materials and helping achieve DOE storage targets for stationary and transportation applications. NREL co-leads the Hydrogen Materials Advanced Research Consortium (HyMARC), which combines the expertise of five national laboratories to develop clean, low-cost, materials-based hydrogen storage systems that exceed the capabilities of physical storage.
