Metal hydride material requirements for automotive hydrogen storage

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has published a progression of technical targets to be satisfied by on-board rechargeable hydrogen storage systems in light-duty vehicles. By combining simplified storage system and vehicle models with interpolated data from metal hydride databases, we obtain material-level requirements for metal hydrides that can be assembled into systems that satisfy the DOE targets for 2017. We assume minimal balance-of-plant components for systems with and without a hydrogen combustion loop for supplemental heating. Tank weight and volume are driven by the stringent requirements for refueling time. The resulting requirements suggest that, at least for this specific application, no current on-board rechargeable metal hydride satisfies these requirements.
