Infrastructure for Stationary Energy Systems


The use of metal hydrides as storage tanks, compressors, heat pumps, for hydrogen purification, etc., requires the development of new arrangements and geometries of the pressure-bearing shell and the metal hydride inside, which allow both the necessary hydrogen flow and the efficient heating and cooling of the hydrides. It is also necessary to embed and integrate these containers in the application in such a way that the overall system is as efficient and compact as possible.
