Research is needed into the large-scale storage of hydrogen in, for example, tanks, cylinders or in salt quarries and other underground storage capacity.
So far, transport and storage of hydrogen are limited because almost all hydrogen is taken up directly as an energy carrier and feedstock in industry. With the scaling up of hydrogen production for deployment in the energy system, it is necessary to examine whether and to what extent the existing intensive transmission and distribution network for natural gas – that is present in our country and connects us to surrounding countries – can be used in a safe and acceptable manner for the transport of hydrogen. The question also arises as to whether the gas grid requires modification or expansion for the purpose of hydrogen transportation, for example due to installation of large-scale electrolysis capacity. Safety is the key requirement here, not only of the transportation system but also of the various applications and storage of hydrogen. Therefore, research is needed into the large-scale storage of hydrogen in, for example, tanks, cylinders or salt caverns and other underground storage capacity.
