The need for safe and efficient hydrogen storage for multi-MWh energy storage systems has been developing steadily in recent years – and Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC) proved to be the solution. Having completed the technological proof of concept the idea became reality and Hydrogenious Technologies, a global pioneer in LOHC based energy storage, was born.
Founded in 2013, Hydrogenious Technologies is a spin-off of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. The initiative was led by its CEO Dr. Daniel Teichmann and the three co-founders Prof. Wolfgang Arlt, Prof. Peter Wasserscheid and Prof. Eberhardt Schlücker.
With the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg becoming a shareholder in May 2014 and the successful close of a Series A funding round in July 2014 with Anglo American Platinum as investor, Hydrogenious Technologies is now backed with strong scientific, strategic and financial capacities to revolutionize large-scale energy and hydrogen storage.
The company’s vision is to make the much discussed hydrogen economy a global reality where the global energy needs for electricity, heat and mobility are covered by green hydrogen, produced out of renewable energies and distributed safely and efficiently via Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers.
Hydrogenious is convinced that this world is possible, and that its LOHC based hydrogen storage technology is the vital link between renewable hydrogen and that reality.
