Using LOHC technology to store energy

Electricity is used to produce hydrogen from water through electrolysis. The hydrogen is chemically bound in Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC), an oily organic liquid. LOHC energy storage systems are


environmentally friendly (emission-free),

scalable and

have an almost unlimited storage capacity.

The charged LOHC+ can be stored and transported at ambient temperature and pressure. Fuel cells can then be used to produce emission-free electricity from the LOHC+. The discharged LOHC- can be recharged. The energy storage capacity of our technology is decoupled from the installed power of a unit (due to inexpensive LOHC tanks), which makes our solution more cost efficient than any other traditional “battery“ for large scale energy storage.
