Hydrogen storage project using depleted uranium to receive funding from £32m UK Government competition

A hydrogen storage project, utilising depleted uranium is set to receive a slice of £32.9m ($39.7m) UK Government funding competition, aimed at developing energy storage technologies.

Five projects will benefit from a share of £32.9m ($39.7m) in the second phase of the Longer Duration Energy Storage (LODES) competition to develop technologies that can store energy as heat, electricity, or low-carbon energy carriers like hydrogen.
