Renewable Energy Storage

Hydrogen Storage

Solar energy is a kind of an unreliable energy source as its dependent on time and the geographical distribution. Thus storage and transportation of solar energy is crucial. An ideal way of doing this is to storage electricity from solar in form of hydrogen which obtained by electrolyzing water. Hydrogen is an energy carrier in a carbon-free, natural cycle. Hydrogen is a fuel which can be transported over long distances and stored so that energy from solar can be transported from solar rich area over long distances in pipelines, stored underground or in containers and used in gaseous or liquid form in industry, households, power stations, motor cars and aviation.

Global Impact Innovation is exploring hydrogen storage in novel chemical hydrides which can be transported in large shipments in liquid form, enabling us to transport solar energy globally, freeing the world from fossil fuels.
