Hydrogen dual-use storage could help reduce operating costs for UK food cold chain

Hydrogen dual-use storage could help reduce operating costs for UK food cold chain

The University of Nottingham has revealed today (May 28) that it is kick starting a new £1m ($1.4m) project to develop dual-use energy storage technology that can deliver hydrogen to a fuel cell and generate direct cooling for refrigeration.

The system would allow hydrogen power to become a key part of the UK’s sustainable energy future and to help decarbonise the UK’s food cold chain, responsible for 18% of the country’s total energy use.

The project aims to produce a highly efficient, innovative and cost-effective dual-use hydrogen storage technology that, due to its versatility, can be used in a range of industrial cooling processes.

Successful implementation of this technology could reduce the UK food cold chain’s dependency on imported energy and accelerate the large-scale roll out of hydrogen fuel cells for heavy good vehicle (HGV) applications.
