Hydrogen Storage: Recent Improvements and Industrial Perspectives


Efficient storage of hydrogen is crucial for the success of hydrogen energy markets. Hydrogen can be stored either as a compressed gas, a refrigerated liquefied gas, a cryo-compressed gas or in hydrides. This paper gives an overview of compressed hydrogen storage technologies focusing on high pressure storage tanks in metal and in composite materials. It details specific issues and constraints related to the materials and structure behavior in hydrogen and conditions representative of hydrogen energy uses. This paper is an update of the 2019 version that was presented in Australia. It especially covers recent progress made regarding regulations, codes and standards for the design, manufacturing, periodic inspection and plastic materials’ evaluation of compressed hydrogen storage.
