University of Nottingham to study hydrogen-powered vehicles and dual-use energy storage

Research by the University of Nottingham is set to help shape the design of hydrogen-powered refrigerated vehicles as part of a £1m project to develop dual-use energy storage technology.

Academics from Nottingham University Business School have worked with key operators in the UK food transport industry to identify barriers to using hydrogen technology in the food cold chain, for green supply and delivery of fresh and frozen products.

The research is studying the capability of delivering hydrogen to a fuel cell to power a vehicle and simultaneously generate cooling for refrigeration.

The social scientists are working with colleagues in the university’s Faculty of Engineering on the project, where their research will feed in to the engineers’ designs.
