In the current issue of gwf Gas + Energie, Matthias Rudloff and Dr.-Ing. Thorsten Lutsch are featured with a technical article on the HyCS® process.
In order for the energy transition to succeed, the volatile amounts of energy generated from wind power and photovoltaics (PV) must be made available through storage for times of low energy production up to the "dark lull". The conversion of electrical energy into hydrogen (H2) and its storage are a relevant option for this. H2 storage in particular must become efficient, compact and cost-effective.

In the following, the innovative HyCS® technology for energy storage based on iron masses and H2 is described and compared with market-available technologies for H2 storage. Furthermore, two application cases are explained.
