Developing materials-based solutions for clean, low-cost hydrogen storage

The Hydrogen Materials Advanced Research Consortium (HyMARC) combines national laboratory expertise to develop clean, low-cost materials-based hydrogen storage systems that exceed the capabilities of physical storage (700 bar pressurized gas and liquid hydrogen) and meet U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) targets for stationary and transportation applications. In this way, HyMARC supports DOE's Energy Earthshots Initiative to provide clean, affordable hydrogen to achieve the nation’s climate and economic competitiveness goals.

HyMARC seeks to identify, develop, and optimize storage for hydrogen end uses with thus-far undefined technical targets, particularly for stationary applications. By employing a co-design strategy, systems modeling and techno-economic analysis are directly coupled to materials discovery, design, and optimization to meet the requirements of specific use cases.
