Driven by the global intensification towards CO2-free mobility, hydrogen-based powertrains will play a crucial role in the future.

One of the biggest challenges to the mass adoption of hydrogen vehicles is storage technology. In this free webinar, IAV’s David Broja, Ingo Friedrich and Richard Trott discuss the importance, variety, complexity and challenges of hydrogen storage systems for different vehicle applications.

Key topics and takeaways:

  • Understand the importance of storage systems as a critical yet often underestimated enabler of hydrogen powertrain technology
  • Learn how vehicle application requirements and physical limitations drive the hydrogen storage systems complexity when applying high pressure, low temperatures or advanced material binding mechanisms
  • Discover why the best solutions for hydrogen storage are highly dependent on the application (e.g., range, energy & heat demand, package volume, ICE / FCEV drivetrain and available infrastructure)
  • Find out why regulation and standards compliance is critical but does not guarantee complete product safety
