The book presents the recent achievements in the use of renewable energy sources, chemical processes, biomaterials for the efficient production of hydrogen, its storage and use as a fuel in the FC-based power systems. Novel results were obtained within two research programs, namely, the NATO Science for Peace G5233 project “Portable Energy Supply” (2017-21) and the priority program of the NAS of Ukraine "Development of scientific principles of the production, storage and use of hydrogen in autonomous energy systems" (2019-21). The priority program was implemented by the leading institutes of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and contained three focus areas: efficient materials and technologies for the production, storage and use of hydrogen. This includes the development of new functional materials for the fuel cells and the application of the latter in autonomous power supply systems. 4-years NATO's project was implemented by a consortium led by the Institute for Energy Technology (Coordinator; NATO country - Norway) together with the institutes from the NATO partner country – Ukraine – belonging to the NAS of Ukraine: Physico-Mechanical Institute, Institute for Problems of Materials Science and Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry. The work included the studies of H2 generation by the hydrolysis of MgH2, Al and NaBH4, analysis of the mechanisms of these processes and selection of the most efficient catalyzers. The project successfully developed a system integrating hydrolysis process and a PEM fuel cell.

The book is aimed for the researchers, engineers, teachers and graduate students specializing in the materials science, energy storage and conversion, particularly for those focusing on hydrogen energy systems and related materials and technologies.
