Storing hydrogen in solids

Hydrogen is an important method for storing energy, especially energy produced by wind and solar power. Hydrogen gas is difficult to store efficiently, but researchers at the University of Bath are developing novel materials that are capable of storing large amounts of hydrogen inside solid materials. These new materials could be invaluable for the development of hydrogen-powered motor vehicles as well as the storage of low carbon energy, which could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the effects of climate change.
