Hydrogen is considered a vital component of the energy transition: it can be produced from solar or wind power and therefore stores green energy in the form of an environmentally friendly energy carrier, providing energy at night and during periods of calm winds. Hydrogen also acts as a climate-neutral fuel for fuel-cell cars and trucks, enabling greater ranges than battery-powered vehicles. Common pressure gas tanks for hydrogen vehicles, however, are still too bulky and their cylindrical shape is difficult to accomodate. The experts are therefore working on an alternative: metal hydride storage. These metal compounds ground into fine powders can bind the hydrogen in astounding quantities. A metal hydride storage unit can store up to 50% more hydrogen than a 700-bar pressure tank of the same size, and due to low pressures, is conformable in shape.
