There has been an increase in the number of hydrogen fueling locations supporting the initial rollout of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). With careful planning, the focus has been to add hydrogen fuel at existing gasoline stations covering regions globally.
The future of hydrogen storage and distribution is forefront at Vision H2. This largely under developed energy source has great opportunity for advancement.
A major advantage of hydrogen is that it can be produced from renewable energy and unlike electricity it can stored in large amounts for extended periods of time. For that reason, hydrogen produced on an industrial scale could play an important part in the transition to clean energy for the future. A viable hydrogen infrastructure for domestic energy sustainability.
Hydrogen is most commonly transported and delivered as a liquid when high-volume transport is needed in the absence of pipelines. To liquefy hydrogen it must be cooled to cryogenic temperatures through a liquefaction process. Trucks transporting liquid hydrogen are referred to as liquid tankers. Liquid hydrogen which requires a cryogenic temperature of -253 ° C
Hydrogen storage in solids may make it possible to store larger quantities of hydrogen in smaller volumes at low pressure and at temperatures close to room temperature.
Hydrogen can be stored as a compressed gas at high pressures (5,000 to 10,000 psi in composite cylinders)
Infrastructure includes the pipelines, trucks, storage facilities, compressors, and dispensers involved in the process of delivering hydrogen. Vison Hydrogen Corporation understands hydrogen infrastructure and the necessity to store hydrogen at a high density through compression in order to reduce the footprint of the storage facility. Storage technology for hydrogen is evolving rapidly and the type of storage infrastructure deployed will be heavily influenced by the intended usage and should consider the mode in which the stored hydrogen will be transported.
