2nd International Workshop on Functional Materials for Mobile Hydrogen Storage, Karlsruhe Research Center, November, 21, 2007

FZK Hydrogen Safety Centre

One of the key issues for hydrogen to be used as energy carrier in mobile applications is the availability of safe and efficient storage. The Helmholtz-Initiative FuncHy Functional Materials for Mobile Hydrogen Storage aims at the development of novel solid-state hydrogen storage materials. The objectives comprise the development of high-capacity materials with suitable working temperatures (e.g. in combination with a fuel cell). The complementary expertise of the FuncHy partners (from five European research institutes) represents an excellent basis to cover the entire chain, starting from fundamental issues of materials science to applied topics, such as up-scaling for industrial production. Together with 13 partners from academia and industry, FuncHy provides the foundation of a European Centre of Excellence in Hydrogen Technology.

The "3rd International Workshop on Functional Materials for mobile Hydrogen Storage" is planned for autumn 2008.
