NTNU Team Hydrogen

NTNU Team Hydrogen is a team of world experts on Hydrogen Energy. The team consists of researchers from different disciplines, departments and faculties across NTNU that works within the Hydrogen area. One of the main tasks of the team is to develop new research programs and projects both nationally and internationally with academia, research organisations and industry, and to coordinate Hydrogen activities within NTNU. We are also educating and training research leaders, innovating, providing solutions, and stimulating the industry.

News from the team


The development of electrode materials for highly efficient water electrolysis is an important challenge on the path to replacing fossil fuels with hydrogen. Helmut Schäfer, University of Osnabrück, Germany, Bruno G. Pollet, member of the NTNU Hydrogen Team and colleagues have found that, under certain circumstances, modified stainless steel can reach an efficiency similar to platinum towards promoting the hydrogen evolution reaction. This reaction is the cathodic half-cell reaction in water electrolysis.

Read more about hydrogen power with less platinum in the research article From Bad Electrochemical Practices to an Environmental and Waste Reducing Approach for the Generation of Active Hydrogen Evolving Electrodes.

Members of the NTNU Hydrogen Team have published the article Heat to H2: Using Waste Heat for Hydrogen Production through Reverse Electrodialysis in the journal Energies.

NTNU and SINTEF were granted funding for the infrastructure application on materials research for transporting hydrogen (Smart-H). Afrooz Barnoush and Filippo Berto from NTNU Team Hydrogen are participating in the Smart-H project.

A pitch on hydrogen on the TCCS 10 Conference from Shareq Mohd Nazir, member of NTNU Team Hydrogen.

Members of the NTNU Hydrogen Team have just published an article Equation of state and force fields for Feynman–Hibbs-corrected Mie fluids. I. Application to pure helium, neon, hydrogen, and deuterium published in The Journal of Chemical Physics. The aim of the research is to provide the first accurate thermodynamic description of quantum mixed refrigerants to improve the hydrogen liquefaction process. 

Øivind Wilhelmsen have wrote a short popular scientific description of the article. Also read ChemistryWorlds story about Hydrogen storage gets real where the research is mentioned.
