报告摘要：Hydrogen as an energy vector will play an increasing role in the future. It can be coupled to renewable energy sources (wind, solar) and is a perfect partner for electricity as it could be produced by it using an electrolyzer or generate electricity from a fuel cell. One of the problems that has to be solved for the full development of a hydrogen economy is the safe and efficient storage of hydrogen. Presently gaseous and liquid storage are the choices solutions but for many applications other means of storage is needed. Metal hydrides are considered to be excellent candidates for hydrogen storage applications because of their high hydrogen volumetric densities (sometimes higher than in liquid hydrogen) and the possibility to absorb and desorb hydrogen with a small change of hydrogen pressure. In this presentation we will discuss about the various means of hydrogen storage, focusing particularly on metal hydrides. Recent results on four different types of metal hydrides will be presented: AB5, Laves phase AB2, BCC alloys and TiFe alloy.
