Hydrogen is often considered to be the ultimate energy source for vehicles. However, if hydrogen is to fuel practical vehicles, then the development of fuel cell and hydrogen fueled engine technology must be accompanied by significant improvements in hydrogen storage techniques. Compressed hydrogen storage tanks, liquid hydrogen storage tanks, and containment systems for hydrides are examined to compare their advantages, disadvantages, and potential for onboard and stationary hydrogen storage systems. Each technique reviewed possesses specific shortcomings; thus, none can adequately satisfy the requirements of a hydrogen based economy.
