Hydrogen

Hydrogen has enormous potential in the transition to a clean energy future. As an energy carrier, hydrogen could play a major role as a means to equalize energy supplies from intermittent renewable sources such as solar and wind. It is simultaneously a key enabler of decarbonized energy and synthesized materials, such as net-zero carbon synthetic hydrocarbons.

Georgia Tech researchers are exploring innovative ways to produce, use, transport, and store hydrogen. Hydrogen is already a key ingredient in many processes in the chemical industry. Supplying hydrogen that is produced in a more sustainable manner to the industrial sector is a parallel objective. Georgia Tech is committed to developing effective technologies related to all aspects of hydrogen and its applications in society. The Institute is also committed to ensuring that these advancements impact our society in an environmentally and socially equitable manner.

Research Areas

Hydrogen Production

Production

Georgia Tech is taking a multi-disciplinary approach to the research and development of many of the “colors” of hydrogen production.

Hydrogen Utilization

Utilization

From fundamental materials innovations to the largest university-based hydrogen combustion research facility in the U.S., Georgia Tech is in an exceptional position to maximize the applications of hydrogen.
