The project is focused on the development of hydrogen fueled portable energy systems integrating hydrogen generation and storage units based on use of light metals and metal hydride materials and portable fuel cells. The weight efficient hydrogen storage devices will be constructed using the selected and performance-optimized materials. The pilot unit (Hydrogen Supply + portable FC) will be tested and commissioned. The project is within the Science for Peace Key Program Priority area  Energy Security.

The project is coordinated by Institute for Energy Technology (NATO country project director V.A. Yartys).

Three institutions from the NATO Partner country Ukraine are the partners in the project and include institutions from the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine,  Karpenko Physico-Mechanical Institute (Lviv), Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science (Kyiv) amd Vernadskii Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry (Kyiv).
