A world-first material to effectively store hydrogen

Safer, Compact Hydrogen Storage Hydrogen has enormous potential as an energy storage medium. This invention provides the key to safer, more compact hydrogen storage. Energy generated from renewable sources, like wind or solar power, is difficult to store and therefore unable to supply demand when weather conditions are unfavourable. A viable ener...
