The Hydrogen Systems Test Bed is a flexible test facility for developing different hydrogen components relating to generation, storage and use. The facility also includes a 1MWh hydrogen store that enables testing to systems up to 100 kW in scale. The facilities are developing novel materials such as a low cost AB2 metal hydride alloy which have a very high energy density (1 kWh/L) – cf. Li-ion batteries. Metal hydride storage enables compact storage of hydrogen at low pressures (<10 bar).
