About This Topic

Sustainable, safe, reliable and economic hydrogen storage is a bottleneck for large scale utilization in particular in the transportation end-uses. Storage device performances must also be appreciated in relation to an array of sectors and technologies involved in the renewable cost-effective production, distribution, and Fuel-Cell applications.

The aim of the present edition is to bring together some major advances in the hydrogen storage sector, for transportations that might be critical for a fast development of hydrogen-based vehicles. The volume is divided into four sections: (i) Hydrogen efficient forms for low-cost storage (ii) Materials for containment, insulation and adsorption (iii) Energy conversion, transmission and conservation periods (iv) Hydrogen economy and ecology.

Contributions from various horizons are welcomed, but preference will be given to those that emphasize the progress of an optimal method, material or network and accelerate a fast development of a first hydrogen vehicular network. Contributions that interconnect these advances with a variety of political and geo-strategic fields, including cultural and financial inputs would be also highly appreciated.
