Safe, cost-effective hydrogen storage to enable the green hydrogen economy

Green hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier that can help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and increase energy security by providing a reliable source of renewable energy. Transition to a green hydrogen economy requires not only hydrogen generation, but crucially it requires innovation in safe, cost-effective hydrogen storage. The Aziz lab is developing a system for reversible hydrogen storage at ambient temperature and pressure that uses a voltage swing for storage and release, without the risk of explosion and fire associated with commercial compressed hydrogen gas tanks. The lab is seeking funding for experimental evaluation of the storage system, iteration of the cell design for performance enhancement, and techno-economic analysis; these de-risking points will enable the eventual launch of a startup company.
