Hydrogen is one of the most promising energy carriers of the future as it can be produced completely regeneratively. In its pure form, it can only be stored and transported under high pressure or at extremely low temperatures. In order to reduce the effort and save costs, hydrogen can be stored in organic carrier molecules. Hydrogen is only easy to handle under normal conditions when it is bound to or converted into a carrier molecule.
At the EnergieCampus, the economic feasibility of chemical hydrogen storage is analyzed in addition to the reaction-related implementation of hydrogen storage - above all by means of liquid organic hydrogen carriers. The close exchange between researchers in economics and engineering is therefore a central component of the research area and forms the direct interface to the subarea of energy market design.
