General information

Short Summary
R&D-based Spanish start-up seeks Eurostars partners to develop further state-of-the-art plug-and-play pressurized hydrogen capsules, which is called to revolutionise the current hydrogen supply chain by offering a scalable, efficient, and cost-effective hydrogen storage and distribution solution. The project promises to enhance the viability of green hydrogen as a key player in the energy sector and paves the way for its widespread adoption across various industries.
Full Description
In the rapidly evolving domain of renewable energy, a groundbreaking project by an innovative team seeks to address the pivotal challenge of green hydrogen storage and distribution. This venture is set within the broader context of the Eurostars Funding Programme 2024, aimed at fostering R&D collaboration across borders to catalyze the transition to sustainable energy solutions.

The project's core objective revolves around the development of state-of-the-art plug-and-play pressurized hydrogen capsules. These capsules are designed to revolutionize the current hydrogen supply chain by offering a scalable, efficient, and cost-effective solution for hydrogen storage and distribution. The initiative not only promises to enhance the viability of green hydrogen as a key player in the energy sector but also paves the way for its widespread adoption across various industries.

Central to this project is the Eurostars programme, which provides the ideal framework for collaborative innovation among SMEs in Eurostars countries. By leveraging the programme’s support, the project aims to harness collective expertise in material science, engineering, and renewable technologies, ensuring a multidisciplinary approach to tackling the complexities of hydrogen energy.

By offering cutting-edge solutions that tackle existing barriers to hydrogen energy, the project not only underscores the team's commitment to sustainability but also exemplifies why they are an ideal choice for potential business partners looking to make a significant impact in the renewable energy sphere.

The project proposal seeks international collaboration to drive forward the green hydrogen agenda.

The Spanish company turns to Eurostars to set up a consortium bringing together a dynamic team of organizations, each contributing unique expertise and capabilities.

They look for enthusiastic companies or SMEs specializing in green hydrogen-based renewable energy solutions, and research institutions with deep technical knowledge in green hydrogen generation, storage, and distribution.

The partners shall be based in Eurostars countries and be funding beneficiaries according to the requirements of the call for proposals.

Strong background in material science, engineering, and market deployment strategies will be appreciated.

With the official call deadline of 12 September 2024 and a project duration anticipated to be 36 months, the team invites expressions of interest from potential partners ready to contribute to and benefit from this innovative endeavour.
Advantages and Innovations
This innovative R&D project introduces a solution for green hydrogen storage and distribution leveraging advanced material sciences and engineering.

It aims to develop plug-and-play pressurized capsules, distinct from current market offerings. These capsules promise significant reductions in hydrogen supply chain costs, potentially decreasing distribution expenses by up to 27%.

Unlike existing solutions that often involve complex and costly infrastructure, the company's technology enables a more scalable, efficient, and environmentally friendly approach.

The societal benefits are substantial, offering a pathway to decarbonize various sectors, from industrial manufacturing to transportation, aligning with global sustainability goals.

The environmental impact is profound, potentially slashing millions of tons of CO2 emissions annually as industries transition to cleaner energy sources.

Market-wise, the adoption of this technology could disrupt the current hydrogen economy, opening new markets and opportunities for green hydrogen applications. This project, therefore, stands not just as a technical innovation but as a catalyst for economic and environmental transformation.
