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.

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.

HyCARE storage tank

1st Project Meeting – Turin 21/01/2019

The project consortium launches the HyCARE Project at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Turin. The overall project structure, the partners’ roles, the expected output and impact are presented. The project aims at developing a hydrogen storage prototype that advanced the state of the art from TRL 3 to TRL5. The Project is a Research and Innovation Action funded by the Fuel Cell ad Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU).
