Hydrogen infrastructure

Technology Type Group:
A hydrogen infrastructure is the infrastructure of hydrogen pipeline transport, points of hydrogen production and hydrogen stations (sometimes clustered as a hydrogen highway) for distribution as well as the sale of hydrogen fuel, and thus a crucial pre-requisite before a successful commercialization of automotive fuel cell technology.

Hydrogen infrastructure

  • Hydrogen storage


    Hydrogen is being developed as an electrical energy storage medium. Hydrogen is produced, then compressed or liquefied, stored, and then converted back to electrical energy or heat or used as an input to (industrial) processes. Hydrogen can be used as a fuel for portable (vehicles) or stationary energy generation. Compared to pumped water storage, CAES and batteries, hydrogen has the advantage that it is a high energy density fuel that can be fed into the grid, stored or converted in ammonia and then stored. Hydrogen can be directly converted to electrical energy using an electrolyser.
