Hydrogen: From production to storage possibilities

MSc. Pēteris Lesničenoks (ISSP UL Laboratory of Hydrogen Energy Materials)

For significant time period we have heard that the oil reserves, along with coal are depleting. That is why we have to be ready to collect every possible exes energy, anywhere, by being more efficient and being able to store it without loss. It is widely known that there are times of year and day, when there is need for more energy, and times when it is generated so much that stations have to be shut down, cause there is no need for it. Hydrogen provides this option to store excess energy safely without loss, and safely, quickly, produce energy from stored hydrogen, when the demand grows. A short overview about hydrogen storage possibilities and ways to actually produce hydrogen.
