Electrochemical Energy and Hydrogen Storage

Renewable energies are in need of efficient energy storage and energy conversion systems due to their variability in power output. Storage of hydrogen is a crucial problem in commercialization of fuel-cell powered cars.

At the INT we develop novel nanostructured materials for electrochemical energy and hydrogen storage and analyze their performance. We work on optimizing their performance through in-situ NMR, XRD and Mössbauer studies of Li-ion materials.  In the area of hydrogen storage we also study aspects of system integration and safety with partners at other institutes at KIT.
