HyCARE @ SHARPER 2020

SHARPER stands for “SHAring Researchers’ Passions for Evidences and Resilience” . SHARPER is one of the 7 projects financed by the European Commission for organizing in Italy the Night of the Researchers in 2020.

SHARPER is taking place on the 27th of Novembre 2020 in the cities of Ancona, Cagliari, Camerino, Catania, L’Aquila, Macerata, Nuoro, Palermo, Pavia, Perugia, Terni, Torino e Trieste to share with citizens the passion, the challenges and the joy of being a researcher in Europe .

HyCARE is participating to the edition in Torino with three activities (Italian only):

  1. Finestre sulla Ricerca with the HyCARE’s video;
  2. Live Chat, on Friday, November 27 from 16.30 to 17.30;
  3. Good Morning Torino, with a programe dedicated to students at high-schools. The “Hydrogen Rally” will engage students in an experiment to understand how hydrogen can be produced and stored.

For more information, please write to the HyCARE’s team at hycare@hycare-project.eu.

HyCARE in the September Newsletter of FCH JU

The September edition of the FCH JU’s Newsletter reports the significant growth of the hydrogen sector in Europe and the impressive innovation in hydrogen production and storage technologies. HyCARE appears as one of the innovative programs finance by FCH JU for improving hydrogen storage at sustainable conditions. In fact, HyCARE will demonstrate a 50 kg hydrogen storage system based on metal hydrades operating at low pressure and low temperature.

HyCARE Project Meeting #4

The HyCARE consortium met online today (3rd of July 2020) to discuss about the state-of-the-art in the development of the HyCARE’s system. Although the COVID-19 has slowed down the activities, the Consortium has made very good progress in the investigation of the expansion behavior of the hydride pellets and in the optimization of the heat exchange and planning of the control strategy.

HIT talks about HyCARE

The Italian Association for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells published a dedicated page on the HyCARE project. The goal is to increase the visibility of the HyCARE project in order to build synergies with other projects in the hydrogen storage sector. If you are interested in the HyCARE project, write to us and we will come back to you with detailed information.

What is the energy for the future?

Hydrogen as a solution to the challenge of renewable energy storage

In the FRIDA online magazine, Prof. Marcello Baricco explains how the HyCARE project contributes in building the future of energy. By converting renewable energy into hydrogen, the HyCARE’s hydrogen storage tank will overcome the limit of intermittent energy supply featuring renewable sources. This will allow us to use renewables at any time.

HyCARE goes to University Autonoma de Madrid

Our researcher Fermìn Cuevas from the Institut de Chimie et des Matériaux Paris (CNRS) hold a webinar to the Master Students of the University Autonoma de Madrid concerning his research activities in the the HyCARE project.

The webinar focuses on the recent paper “Development of TiFe intermetallics for large-scale stationary hydrogen storage in the framework of the European project HyCARE”, by F. Cuevas, E.-M. Dematteis, M. Latroche.

Covid-19 doesn’t stop HyCARE!

The lockdown forces our researchers at home but their passion for chemistry and energy keeps flowing.

The initiative #unitohomecommunity by #FridA goes to our researchers’ homes asking about their activities and projects.

Why is it important but difficult to store renewable energy?

How to store renewable energy to use it when necessary?

What is the role of hydrogen in storing renewable energy?

Why HyCARE is a promising solutions for storing hydrogen and renewable energy?

Our project coordinator Marcello Baricco answers to these questions from his balcony in Turin.

HyCARE goes on Radio24

Why is HyCARE a key project for building the Hydrogen Economy in Europe? Why is large-scale hydrogen storage important? What are the benefits and challenges of storing hydrogen with metal hydrides? These are just a few of the questions answered by Prof. Marcello Baricco, project coordinator of Hycare, during the interview at Radio24.
