Storing hydrogen in coal may help power clean energy economy

Posted by in categories: economics, energy, engineering, transportation

The quest to develop hydrogen as a clean energy source that could curb our dependence on fossil fuels may lead to an unexpected place—coal. A team of Penn State scientists found that coal may represent a potential way to store hydrogen gas, much like batteries store energy for future use, addressing a major hurdle in developing a clean energy supply chain.

“We found that can be this geological hydrogen battery,” said Shimin Liu, associate professor of energy and mineral engineering at Penn State. “You could inject and store the hydrogen energy and have it there when you need to use it.”

Hydrogen is a clean burning fuel and shows promise for use in the most energy intensive sectors of our economy—transportation, electricity generation and manufacturing. But much work remains to build a and make it an affordable and reliable energy source, the scientists said.

Last year generative artificial intelligence (AI) took the world by storm as advancements populated news and social media. Investors were swarming the space as many recognized its potential across industries. According to IDC, there is already a 26.9% increase in global AI spending compared to 2022. And this number is forecast to exceed $300 billion in 2026.

It’s also caused a shift in how people view AI. Before, people thought of artificial intelligence as an academic, high-tech pursuit. It used to be that the most talked-about example of AI was autonomous vehicles. But even with all the buzz, it had yet to be a widely available and applied form of consumer-grade AI.

Vinay is the CEO and Founder of, the AI cloud for safe & responsible AI.

From self-driving cars to virtual assistants, AI is driving us to a high-performing ecosystem, creating promising use cases across industries every day. While organizations are generating substantial value with artificial intelligence (AI), the technology has many potential risks. Although its capabilities are expanding daily, so are the regulations, risks and ethical pitfalls around AI. Let’s discuss AI’s potential risks to individuals and society and industries’ preparedness to mitigate them.

Reliability is critical to ensuring the effective and safe deployment of AI models in real-world applications. While AI models are expected to maintain accuracy, their performance can drift over time due to several factors. Failure to monitor and diagnose AI models can lead to inaccurate predictions and high-stakes issues.
