Metrology for Advanced Hydrogen Storage Solutions

“Hydrogen will play a major role in energy storage systems – the project will secure correct metrology of hydrogen and hydrogen blends”

MefHySto addresses the need of large-scale energy storage,
which is required for a shift to renewable energy supply. Such storage is required to supply energy at peak times when renewable sources fluctuate and can be realized with large-scale use of hydrogen.

Three different methods of storage are envisaged:
• reversible storage in solids by hydrides or adsorption in porous media.
• underground storage in geological cavities
• insertion into the natural gas grid

Metrological traceability in the energy infrastructure for hydrogen storage is crucial. Thus, improved knowledge of chemical and physical properties of hydrogen as well as traceable measurements and validated techniques are imperative.
