Researchers at London South Bank University’s (LSBU) School of the Built Environment and Architecture are working to develop a new way of storing hydrogen in buses to eliminate the need for large high-pressure cylinders.
The University today (24th Nov) said it will investigate hydride to absorb, release and store hydrogen to replace the cylinders. The alternative method is also thought to improve safety and reduce power consumption.
LSBU has been awarded £60,000 of Government funding from Innovate UK for the project and will work with thermal management company Ricardo on design and analysis in the first phase.
Once phase one is complete, the University will develop a prototype of the new hydrogen storage solution.
