The project aims to validate and demonstrate the dynamic operation of a 520kg hydrogen metal hydride storage subsystem integrated with the Advanced Research on Integrated Energy Systems (ARIES) mega-watt scale hydrogen capabilities.

$1.7m of the funding allocation will go to this project and will look to add two HY2MEGA metal hydride hydrogen storage tanks to the hydrogen assets at the ARIES facility at the NREL’s Flaitron’s Campus near Boulder, Colorado.

The performance of the HY2MEGA installation will be evaluated over a range of operational conditions and simulated use cases using the ARIES facility capabilities.

With this, GKN Hydrogen stated that the project will be complete by September 2022.

Peter Oberparleiter, CEO at GKN Powder Metallurgy, said, “This a tremendous opportunity to collaborate with the DOE National Laboratories to validate and run megawatt scale use cases with our green, safe and compact metal hydride hydrogen storage solution.

“Projects of this scale are needed to accelerate the adoption of zero emission technologies to help us all meet our future clean energy goals.”

US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power

What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?

North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.

What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
