Hydrogen is often considered a technology for the future due to the limitations of current hydrogen storage materials in fuel cell vehicles. However, with the first hydrogen vehicles on the road and the need for better energy storage systems to support the growing penetration of renewable energies, hydrogen-based technologies will undoubtedly play an increasingly important role in the future. energy plans in the future.
To support the absorption of hydrogen, the challenge is to design better materials than currently available. This means materials capable of absorbing and releasing reversible hydrogen near the environment and with a storage capacity close to 10% by weight.
