Global Hydrogen Energy Storage Market: Overview
Hydrogen energy storage systems receive an increased positive attention worldwide. The technology is very promising as hydrogen fuel storage can store in far more efficient energy consumption. This is perhaps why departments like the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office in the US has set specific goals to bolster the technology. The department had set its sights on creating automotive hydrogen storage systems that would provide 300 miles while meeting requirements for safety, commercial viability, and performance. These goals have largely met and today’s electric automobiles are expected to drive further enhancements in hydrogen energy storage market.
Apart from automotive sector, the hydrogen energy storage market caters to the needs of material handling equipment, portable power applications, and onboard light-duty vehicles. The rising investment in hydrogen storage and its promise as a renewable source of energy is expected to drive significant growth for the hydrogen energy storage market in the near future.

Global Hydrogen Energy Storage Market: Notable Developments
Researchers at National Accelator Laboratory and from Stanford University have proven in a recent research that cheap catalysts can generate hydrogen gas for hours. The new method based on the electrolyzer technology promises to split water for a large scale commercial application in harsh environments. In fact, the technology has been tested under these very conditions. Earlier, the high costs of catalysts like iridium, and platinum were major barriers to boost efficiency of chemical reactions. However, new research published in Nature Nanotechnology promises a cheap solution to generation of hydrogen for a commercial scale.
Vattenfall, LKAB, and SSAB have announced an investment of $15.2 million on the construction of a hydrogen storage facility. The facility will be used as a pilot plant for fossil-free steel. The funding is part of Swedish Energy Agency’s push to produce steel and iron in a sustainable manner. By using hydrogen storage, Sweden is expected to cut down its carbon emission by 10%. The facility is expected to start operations in 2022 and will likely run till 2024. This is one of the many initiatives to push hydrogen storage to become the backbone to meet energy needs of other sectors. In the future, hydrogen production can come from renewable sources like wind, and solar energy. Hence, shifting other sectors to avail more hydrogen storage is a necessity for meeting renewable energy goals.
