HYdrogen STORage In European Subsurface
January 2021 - June 2023
SUMMARY AND OBJECTIVES
While storing pure hydrogen in salt caverns has been practiced since the 70s in Europe, pure hydrogen storage has not yet been carried out yet anywhere in depleted fields or aquifers. Hystories will deliver technical developments applicable to a vast range of future aquifer or depleted field sites, will conduct techno-economic feasibility studies and provide insights into underground hydrogen storage for decision makers in government and industry. The final outcome of the project will be assessments of techno-economic feasibility of implementing hydrogen storage in preferred locations, to enable informed decision making on pilot demonstration and industrial deployment.
FHA is leading the WP6 about the project impacts from the regulatory framework, environmental and social points of view, and leading the WP8 that analyses the business case of large scale underground hydrogen storage in some EU members, including Spain.
