HYSCORE - Hydrogen Storage and Carriage as Opportunity for Renewable Energy Transition

Hyscore - Behzad Vasheghani Farahani

Hydrogen offers a possibility to ensure Europe-wide energy production through renewable energy sources. However, the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier also requires a safe and well-developed infrastructure for transport and storage. The use of hydrogen as an energy carrier needs an efficient distribution system. Transporting hydrogen via steel pipelines is a challenging endeavor as atomic hydrogen diffusion can lead to the embrittlement of the steel. The project aims to develop a scale bridging, simulation-based framework to establish an extended safety assessment guideline for steel pipelines under hydrogen loading.
