    • Filling Centres: 4-20 tonnes/day;
    • HRS: 0.5-4 tonnes/day;

Solar energy has by far the highest potential of all options. In this context, solar thermochemical cycles may contribute to complement the electrochemical solar hydrogen production. Proposals under this topic aim to bring thermochemical cycles to the next stage of maturity.

    The risk management aspects concerning the transfers of LH2 are critical and need to be technically addressed to provide a solid basis for future standardisation and safety regulation. The project should provide practical outputs (as safe procedures and installation/implantation rules) based on the current LH2 hazards knowledge available and/or developed in previous projects.
    International regulations addressing CO2 emissions are forcing all industries to rethink their processes to become more sustainable. When it comes to the heavy-duty transport or shipping industry for instance, the use of liquified hydrogen (also referred to as liquid hydrogen or LH2) as an energy carrier and/or fuel appears essential in the short- to mid-term to reach the set objectives.
